Notice of Public Information Centre – Replacement of the Existing Water Storage Facility

News & Notices Menu

The Town of Aylmer has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) Study to evaluate replacement options for the existing Standpipe located at 23 Myrtle Street, Aylmer ON. The Class EA Study will identify the preferred method of water storage to meet the Town’s demands and preferred location of a new water storage facility.

The Replacement of the Existing Water Storage Facility Class EA Study is being completed with the appropriate steps outlined in Schedule B of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) (2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 & 2015).

A key component of the study is consultation with interested stakeholders (public and agencies) as well as Indigenous communities. A Public Information Centre (PIC) is scheduled where the community is invited to learn more about this project, and provide comments for consideration during design.

The Town has reviewed several locations for a new water storage facility. When considering archaeological, economical, environmental, social, and technical factors, a preferred site was selected. Projections for future population and associated water demand including fire protection were considered when selecting the storage capacity of the new water storage facility. The preferred water storage facility site is located on town owned property west of the intersection of Beech Street and Elm Street.
