Pontiac Pumping Station Upgrades at the Little River Pollution Control Plant - Schedule C Municipal Class Environmental Assessment

The City of Windsor is undertaking a Schedule C Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) to increase capacity of existing Pontiac Pumping Station at the Little River Pollution Control Plant. This study will satisfy phases 3 and 4 of the Class EA process, which will involve the evaluation of alternative design concepts for the proposed Pontiac Pumping Station Capacity Upgrades. An Environmental Study Report will be prepared to document the activities and recommendations from the Class EA process.

The City of Windsor endorsed its first comprehensive Sewer and Coastal Flood Protection Master Plan (SMP) in 2020. The SMP was completed in accordance with phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process. The SMP identified specific improvement projects that can be undertaken by the City to improve efficiency and reduce the risk of flooding caused by severe storm events. It is outlined in the SMP that the capacity upgrades of Pontiac Pumping Station within the Little River Pollution Control Plant (refer to key map) are required to discharge excess water during major storm events in the expanded Pontiac drainage area.

This EA is tentatively scheduled to be completed by August 2022.
