Public Notice

West Vaughan Sewer Servicing Environmental Assessment



NOTICE OF FILING OF ADDENDUM

York Region completed a Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) study in 2013 to identify and evaluate practical sewage servicing alternatives for the West Vaughan area. The Class EA Study was conducted under Schedule ‘C’ of the Municipal Engineers Association Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process (October, 2000, as amended) approved under the Environmental Assessment Act.

The Environmental Study Report (ESR), completed as part of the Class EA, identified a 14-kilometre sewer route from the Kleinburg Water Resource Recovery Facility (WRRF) to the Humber Sewage Pumping Station as the preferred solution for future sewage servicing in West Vaughan.

During the design phase, it was determined that a significant number of shafts could be reduced by using a different tunnelling methodology for the northern section of the sewer route. The alignment from Highway 7 to the Humber Sewage Pumping Station has been revised to avoid potential issues with respect to existing and future bridge crossings. The alignment was originally planned to travel along Legion Road and is now proposed to follow a City of Vaughan right-of-way, just west of Wallace Street. The proposed modifications will reduce potential disruptions to the community and minimize potential impacts to the natural environment.

Map of proposed construction area

This review is complete and an Addendum has been added to the ESR, which includes details of modified alignment and shaft locations, as well as the amended construction schedule. Only the Addendum is open for review and subject to any comments; York Region intends to proceed with the design and construction as presented.

This Notice places the Addendum on the public record. The Addendum is available for public review for 30 calendar days from January 14, 2016 to February 12, 2016 at the following locations during regular business hours of each location:
