BRIGHT’S GROVE WATER TREATMENT PLANT INTAKE REPLACEMENT
Bright’s Grove WTP Intake Replacement Environmental Assessment
What is this study all about?
The Town of Petrolia (Town) is undertaking an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the new intake at the Bright’s Grove Water Treatment Plant (WTP). The existing raw intake from Lake Huron originally installed in 1944 is approaching the end of its useful service life. The Project will increase access to safe drinking water by restoring the capacity of the existing treatment plant to its rated capacity of 12,000 m3/d.
How is this study being done?
This study is proceeding in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class EA process (October 2000, amended in 2015), which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. This study will fulfill the requirements for a Schedule B project.
