Notice of Environmental Assessment Schedule A+ for Port Robinson System Interconnect Watermain

Niagara Region has initiated a public notice for the improvement of the trunk system connectivity with a new watermain along Thorold Townline Rd. between Brown Rd. and McLeod Rd. The new watermain will be approximately 1.2 km long, and will connect the existing pressure-reducing valve on McLeod Rd. to the Port Robinson Chlorine Booster Station on Brown Rd. The design and specification for the construction of the watermain are expected to be completed in November 2020, with the construction of works to commence in 2021.

A new section of watermain is required on Thorold Townline Rd. to improve the system connectivity, water quality and pressure for the Port Robinson system.

This project is being planned as a Schedule “A+” Class Environmental Assessment as per the requirements of the Municipal Engineers Association Class Environmental Assessment process. This project will define the staging strategy and design work for the construction of the watermain. This will also aim to minimize the effects on the community and the natural environment.

Niagara Region encourages the public and stakeholders to actively participate in this planning process. Anyone who wishes to comment on or be involved in this project should indicate their interest, preferably in writing to:
