Lake Huron Water Treatment Plant Disinfection & Storage Upgrades Class Environmental Assessment

The recently completed LHPWSS Master Water Plan Update (2020) identified the need to improve disinfection and increase water storage at the LHWTP, to meet water demands to the year 2038. A Schedule B Municipal Class Environmental Assessment has been initiated to confirm and refine the preferred alternative to enhance disinfection at the water treatment plant and meet the water storage requirements, while providing the plant with flexibility to implement energy management and other operational strategies. The study represents an opportunity to develop alternative solutions, assess their technical viability, and conduct a comprehensive evaluation to select a preferred alternative within the framework of the Schedule B Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process. Public input and comments are encouraged throughout the study.
