Waterworks Master Plan Update Report - Notice of Completion
The Town of Midland has retained the services of AECOM to undertake an update to the existing Waterworks Services Master Plan (2013) to reflect growth in the community, planned development, and operational changes. The Town of Midland is identified as a Primary Urban Settlement Area in the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe (2017) and is anticipating continued growth and development in the community.
The existing population of Midland is approximately 16,864 and is expected to reach 22,500 by the year 2031. The proposed update to the existing Waterworks Master Plan will provide a comprehensive water servicing infrastructure plan for the community for the next 20 years.
It will also support the Town's Official Plan Review and Development Charges Study. The project study area includes the limits of the Town of Midland as well as a several key stakeholders located within the neighbouring Tay Township (i.e. St. Marie Among the Hurons, Martyr's Shrine, and Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre) that are currently serviced by the Town of Midland.
This undertaking will be completed in accordance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Oct. 2000, as amended 2007, 2011 & 2015) with the intent of addressing Phases 1 and 2 of the Class EA process thereby fulfilling the requirements for the Schedule 'A', 'A+', and 'B' projects identified within the document. The final notice for this Master Plan update will be considered the Notice of Completion for the Schedule 'B' projects.
