Norfolk County (County) has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to implement an approximately 20 km length transmission water main that connects Simcoe to the Townsend Water Supply System, to secure water supply from the Nanticoke Water Treatment Plant, including a new elevated water tank and booster station. These improvements are required to meet long-term (2041) Inter-Urban Water Supply capacity and quality demands within the County. The proposed water main route is shown on the key map below.

This study is being undertaken in accordance with the requirements for Schedule ‘B’ projects within the Municipal Class EA document (2000, as amended), under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.

How can I participate in this study?

A key element of the EA process is gathering comments from the public, stakeholders, utilities, businesses and regulatory agencies. To share project details and progress with the public, two Public Information Centres (PICs) will be held throughout the duration of the study. The first PIC to present background information is being held in person at the Norfolk County Administration Building Council Chambers (50 Colborne St S, Simcoe, ON) on Thursday, August 4, 2022 from 5:00-7:00 p.m.

Details of the PIC will be published closer to the date and made available on the County’s website:
