Black Ash Creek Sewage Pumping Station Upgrades
The Study
Further to the Notice of Study Commencement (issued on January 27, 2017), the Town of Collingwood is continuing to undertake the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Schedule B) to consider alternatives to upgrades and improve the Black Ash Creek sewage pumping station include increasing capacity to more than double its current rated capacity. 
The Black Ash Creek sewage pumping station is located on the west side of Balsam Street, north of Black Ash Creek as illustrated on the accompanying map.
The Process
The Town of Collingwood has retained Ainley Group to complete and document a Schedule B Class EA planning process, as outlined by the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Document, October 2000, as amended in 2015.  
During Phase 2 of the study, alternative solutions were identified and analyzed to find the most appropriate solution for the Town of Collingwood. The recommended solution is the construction of a new sewage pumping station west of the existing sewage pumping station on the same site. Mitigation measures have been developed to minimize, prevent or avoid any adverse environmental impacts.
