2021 Water and Wastewater Master Servicing Plan Update
All Niagara Region projects

About the Project

Niagara is expected to gain 214,000 new residents and 81,000 new jobs by 2051. We need to plan now to make sure we have the water and wastewater infrastructure we need to support this growth, including water / wastewater pipes, pumping stations and water / wastewater treatment plants.

The update will be coordinated with other Regional plans including:

  • Development Charges Background Study and By-law
  • Transportation Master Plan refresh
  • Regional Official Plan - 2051 Population and Employment Forecasts

In 2016, Niagara Region completed a Water and Wastewater Master Servicing Plan that charted infrastructure needs to the year 2041, while maintaining levels of service. This 2021 update to the plan will incorporate recent knowledge and current priorities to ensure we can accommodate further growth expected by 2051 and beyond, as per the amended Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe.

The process

The study follows the master planning process as established by the Municipal Engineer's Association Class Environmental Assessment process for Master Plans, which is an approved Ontario Environmental Assessment process. The Master Servicing Plan Update will satisfy phases 1 and 2 of the Class Environmental Assessment process, including developing and evaluating alternative servicing strategies for the Region's systems and facilities. Public and stakeholder input will be sought throughout the process and a Master Servicing Plan Update Report will be prepared and filed for public review.
