Class EA for Expansion of the Bruce Energy Centre Wastewater Treatment Plant

The Municipality of Kincardine has initiated a Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) process to investigate the feasibility and requirements associated with the potential provision of wastewater services to Bruce Power. From background work completed as part of the Municipality of Kincardine Water and Wastewater Servicing Master Plan, there is some existing reserve capacity at the Bruce Energy Centre Wastewater Treatment Plant (BEC WWTP); however, an expansion to the existing plant capacity would be required to accommodate the expected wastewater flow from Bruce Power.

The location of the plant is at the northwest corner of Concession 2 and Albert Road. The investigation will consider alternatives related to both the expansion of BEC WWTP capacity and the conveyance of the wastewater to the plant. The study will also consider opportunities to service adjacent residential lands and commercial/industrial operations.
