Notice of Public Information Centre for Quaker Road Sanitary Trunk Sewer in Pelham and Welland

Niagara Region has initiated the design of a new sanitary trunk sewer along Quaker Road between Pelham Street and Rice Road. The new sanitary trunk sewer will redirect flows from the Town of Pelham which currently travels down Pelham Street and from Welland Road across Quaker Road to the Region’s existing trunk sewer east of Rice Road.

The Region’s Master Servicing Plan (2016) identified long-term system improvements that included a 600 mm trunk sanitary relief sewer along Quaker Road connecting the Pelham Street Regional sanitary sewer to the outlet sewer east of Rice Road in order to provide adequate capacity for future sanitary flows.

Niagara Region encourages the public and stakeholders to actively participate in the design process. Information about the project is available on the Quaker Road Sanitary Trunk Sewer project page as part of a Public Information Centre. You can learn about how this project will contribute to Niagara’s overall growth plan, key servicing issues being considered, and how you can have your voice heard.

Upon completion of the design, a Project File Report documenting the design process will be prepared and made available for public review and comment. Anyone who wishes to comment on this design should indicate their interest, preferably in writing to the project team.
