Sewer and Coastal Flood Protection Master Plan

About the Master Plan

The City of Windsor is developing a sewer master plan to better understand flooding issues in the city. The master plan will set standards for successful operation and maintenance of the city's storm and sanitary sewer systems as well as identify, by priority, future upgrades and expansion requirements for the long-term maintenance of the entire system. The master plan will take a system-wide approach to identify specific improvement projects that can be undertaken by the City to improve efficiency and reduce the risk of flooding caused by wet weather. This work is a key part of the Mayor's 8-Point Plan to address flooding in the city.

This project is being undertaken as a master plan under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Process. This process provides an overarching framework to identify problems and opportunities; consider alternatives; and confirm program, maintenance and infrastructure improvements.
