Notice of Public Information Centre: Town of Collingwood Water and Sanitary Sewer System Master Servicing Plan



The Town of Collingwood will experience growth over the next 15 years.  To ensure that adequate water and wastewater servicing can support that growth, the Town, through their consultants, Cole Engineering and C3 Water, has been developing a comprehensive and flexible Master Servicing Plan to identify the water and wastewater infrastructure projects required to service growth to the year 2031 and beyond.

The Master Servicing Plan is intended to be flexible and innovative with servicing strategies that can be scalable to fit future needs. To support the Plan, the project team has developed:

  • Predictive modelling tools,
  • An Inflow and Infiltration Reduction Program,
  • Recommendations for updates to the Official Plan, and,
  • Recommendations for updates to the 2014 Development Charges Study.



The study has followed what’s known as Approach 1 of the Municipal Engineers Association Class Environmental Assessment process for Master Plans, which involves broad assessment of the problem/opportunity (i.e. the need for planned service growth), identification and evaluation of alternative solutions and selection of the preferred approach.  Small projects (known as Schedule A and A+ projects) may proceed after the Plan is approved, while larger projects (known as Schedule B and C projects) will require additional site specific analysis in the future. 



Public and agency consultation is vital to the success of this study.  To ensure that those interested in this project have an opportunity to provide input to and receive feedback from the study team, a Public Information Centre (PIC) will be held as per the details below.The PIC will present study background information, the various strategies considered, evaluation of the servicing strategies and selection of the recommended servicing strategies and next steps. The location and time of the PIC is shown below.
