Pottersburg Sanitary Trunk Sewer Environmental Assessment


The existing Pottersburg Creek Trunk Sanitary Sewer crosses the Pottersburg Creek several times at a shallow depth with segments of the sewer in poor condition. Additionally, portions of the existing Pottersburg Creek Trunk Sanitary Sewer are located on private property, limiting access to the sewer. The existing sewer is in need of rehabilitation or replacement, however, due to its alignment, localized rehabilitation is challenging. Subsequently, the City has retained GM Blueplan Engineering Ltd., as the Consultant to carry out a Schedule ‘B’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) study to identify the preferred Pottersburg Creek Trunk Sanitary Sewer Realignment.
