St. Rose Stormwater Pumping Station Municipal Class Environmental Assessment

The City of Windsor (City) is undertaking a Schedule 'C' Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) for the proposed St. Rose pumping station and associated storm sewers. The City adopted its Sewer and Coastal Flood Protection Master Plan (SMP) in 2020. The SMP identified the need for a new stormwater pumping station and new storm sewer outlet to the Detroit River in the St. Rose area. The SMP has been completed in accordance with phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process.

Upon completion of the SMP, projects identified as Schedule A, A+ and B are approved for implementation and construction. The requirements in the SMP for a new St. Rose pumping station and storm sewers are identified as a Schedule C project. Hence, the goal of this project is to complete phases 3 and 4 of the Class EA process. This will confirm the location of the St. Rose pumping station and lay out the preferred design for the pumping station and connecting storm sewers. This EA is tentatively scheduled to be completed by November 2022.
