York Durham Sewage System Forcemain Twinning

The Regional Municipality of York will proceed with modifications to the York Durham Sewage System Forcemain Twinning, a significant component of the Upper York Sewage Solutions project.

On March 7, 2018 the Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry issued a declaration order which enables the Region to proceed with twinning of the wastewater forcemains and alterations to the Newmarket and Bogart Creek Sewage pumping stations.

The project will include a new 5.2-kilometre forcemain (sewer) from the existing Newmarket Pumping Station to the existing sewer that discharges to the Aurora Sewage Pumping Station as well as a new 0.5-kilometre forcemain from the existing Bogart Creek Sewage Pumping Station to the new Newmarket forcemain.

Given the potential risk to public health and the natural environment due to either sewer breaks or high-flow conditions, York Region requested the Ministry separate the York Durham Sewage System modifications component from the other two components of the Upper York Sewage Solutions Individual Environmental Assessment and exempt it from the Environmental Assessment Act. This allows the Region to proceed with implementing this work.

Through a Working Together Committee, York Region will work with Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority and the Town of Newmarket to deliver this project in a collaborative manner.

York Region will continue to coordinate with Ministry of Environment and Climate Change on the other two components of the Upper York Sewage Solutions project.
