34 FOCUS - JUNE 2018 Provision of additional water supply capacity and water storage capacity to service the Port Perry Urban Area Notice of Completion Works Department Public Notice The Regional Municipality of Durham has completed a Schedule C Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA), to plan for additional water supply and storage capacity to service the Port Perry Urban Area, and to improve naturally occurring aesthetic characteristics of the existing municipal water supply (taste, odour and colour). The Region has consulted with the public and agencies on the objectives of the study, water supply alternatives, water storage alternatives and the criteria used to evaluate the alternatives. Considering comments received, the recommended approach is to: • Install a new municipal well next to the existing municipal wells in order to supplement the capacity of the existing wells; • Construct a new water supply plant at Scugog Line 3 and Simcoe Street to treat all water supplied to Port Perry Urban Area; • Construct a new water storage tower (elevated tank) east of Taylor Boulevard in order to supplement the capacity of the existing water storage tower (standpipe) on Silver Street. • Consider a new bulk water filling station at the new water storage tower site (and the existing bulk water filling station on Simcoe Street would be decommissioned). The Environmental Study Report (ESR) documents all relevant study information, including the planning and decision-making processes followed during this Class EA. Reference copies of the ESR will be available for viewing during a 60-day review period from June 1 to July 30, 2018. The ESR will be available at the following locations starting on June 1, 2018: Township of Scugog Office Scugog Memorial Public Library Region of Durham Headquarters (Clerks Department) 181 Perry Street, Port Perry 231 Water Street, Port Perry 605 Rossland Road East, Whitby An electronic version will also be available on the Region of Durham Website at: durham.ca/WorksProjects How can I provide comments?
