Notice of Public Information Centre #2 for New Pelham Elevated Tank Environmental Assessment

​Niagara Region is undertaking a Class Environmental Assessment for a new Pelham Elevated Water Storage Tank and transmission system upgrades. This project is part of the recommended improvements from the Water and Wastewater Master Servicing Plan to the Pelham Service Area of the Welland Water System.  The purpose of the study is to address adequate storage, pressure, and capacity to support growth. The study follows the Schedule ‘B’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process as set out by the Municipal Engineers Association (October 2000 amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015).
The new Pelham Elevated Water Storage Tank is an important project to both the community and Niagara Region. We heard your comments at the November 2019 Public Information Centre for additional consultation and review of the potential sites for the new elevated water storage tank. Based on this, the project team has reconsidered and re-evaluated suitable sites within the Town of Pelham for the construction of a new elevated water storage tank and the necessary improvements to the existing water system and identified a recommended solution.
Starting on Aug. 31 project presentation, information and comment forms can be found on the project page.
We invite you to view the virtual Public Information Centre presentation and provide comments.
