Addendum to Schedule B Municipal Class EA: Long Term Water Supply to Clearview, Community of Stayner

Long Term Water Supply to Clearview, Community of Stayner

The Study

The Township of Clearview (Township) is undertaking an Addendum to the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Long-Term Water Supply for Clearview (Schedule B).  The previous EA study was completed in February 2008 to assess long-term water supply requirements for Clearview based on forecasted growth.  The original EA encompassed numerous communities in Clearview; however, this Addendum focuses on the community of Stayner only and has been triggered by recent investigations, which have found a viable groundwater source north east of Stayner.

The Study Area includes the southern portion of an agricultural property, located at 1585 Klondike Park Road, at the northeast corner of Klondike Park Road and Sunnidale Concession 12 Road (Site), and the existing rights-of-way (ROW) along Sunnidale Concession 12 Road west from 1585 Klondike Park Road to County Road 7, south on County Road 7 to Nottawasaga 27/28 Sideroad (County Road 96), and west on Nottawasaga 27/28 (County Road 96) to the Clearview Township Public Works building (see map).

The Process

The Addendum reviews various water supply alternatives previously identified for Stayner with respect to water demand and treatment only.  Considering the project changes since the 2008 EA, the evaluation of alternative solutions is revisited with respect to meeting the study objectives, impacts to the natural, social, economic and technical environments.  Effective mitigation measures for the revised preferred solution are also identified.  This Addendum is being carried out in accordance with the planning process as outlined in the Municipal Class EA (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015), which is approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.


Opportunity to Participate

The Township is inviting the public to attend the Public Information Centre (PIC) for this Addendum.  This PIC will present the results of additional environmental and technical studies completed, the alternative solutions considered and a revised preferred solution for input by the public.
