Water and Wastewater Master Servicing Plan Notice of Commencement Class Environmental Assessment

Wastewater Treatment Plant

The Township of Cavan Monaghan is undertaking a Water and Wastewater Master Servicing Plan addressing Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA), June 2000, as amended in 2015. The Master Plan is intended to follow “Approach 1” of the Class EA, a process that will be done at a broad level of assessment to identify a conceptual plan for water and wastewater servicing in the Township. The project is intended to address Township improvement and growth opportunities, considering this in the context of the Township of Cavan Monaghan Official Plan.

Most of the existing Millbrook settlement area has municipal water and wastewater services while hamlets (including Cavan, Ida, Mount Pleasant, Springville, Fraserville and South Monaghan) are typically on private wells and septic systems. The master plan will consider and examine alternatives and viability to provide water and wastewater servicing to the entire Millbrook community. This includes expanding services to areas within the settlement boundary and possibly beyond, if financially worthwhile. It will identify the preferred drinking water supply, storage and distribution alternative and the preferred wastewater treatment and sanitary sewage collection alternative to prepare for the next 10 years and for long term vision.

Interested persons are encouraged to bring comments and concerns to the Township at any time during this process and to identify their interest in being added to the project mailing list. A Public Information Meeting will be held as part of the study at which Township staff and their consultants will be available to provide information and answer questions regarding the project. The public meeting is tentatively scheduled for Spring 2021.
