Yonge Street / Highway 7 Regional Centre Water and Wastewater Servicing Environmental Assessment

Town of Richmond Hill and City of Markham

The Regional Municipality of York (York Region) identified the potential need for new water and wastewater projects to accommodate approved growth in an area along the boundary between the Town of Richmond Hill and the City of Markham as shown below.

York Region has initiated a Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) study for this project in accordance with Schedule ‘B’ of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, as amended in 2011). The purpose of this Class EA study is to focus on the water and wastewater servicing requirements for this Regional Centre, also known as the Richmond Hill/Langstaff Gateway Urban Growth Centre, up to 2051.

The study area, service area and preliminary recommended sanitary sewer alignment for this Class EA are shown on the map below:

Consultation with and input from the public and government review agencies is a vital component of the Class EA process. Members of the public and review agencies are invited to provide comment for incorporation into the overall planning and preliminary design of the project.

The Public Consultation Centre will present the problem/opportunity, evaluation of alternatives, preliminary recommended solution, summary of the process the Region has followed and next steps.
