Notice of study completion: Northwest Trenton Water Capacity – Class Environmental Assessment

The City of Quinte West has completed a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) study to determine the preferred solution to address the need for additional pressure and flow to support the water demands of future expansion in Northwest Trenton. The City intends to install a watermain of sizes 450mm to 500mm starting on Dundas Street West (Highway 2) at Walmart to the Tate Road/Telephone Road intersection through the Tremur Lake area and an additional valve chamber on Telephone Road.

This study was carried out in accordance with the requirements for a Schedule “B” Municipal Class Environmental Assessment. The planning and decision-making process – including consultation with the public and review agencies, assessment of environmental impacts of alternative solutions, and identification of the preferred solution – has been completed. 

The 30-day public review period will commence on January 18th, 2023. For more information or to provide comments please email one of the following project contacts by February 17th, 2023:

The public has the ability to request a higher level of assessment on a project if they are concerned about potential adverse impacts to constitutionally protected Aboriginal and treaty rights. In addition, the Minister may issue an order on his or her own initiative within a specified time period. The Director (of the Environmental Assessment Branch) will issue a Notice of Proposed Order to the proponent if the Minister is considering an order for the project within 30 days after the conclusion of the comment period on the Notice of Completion. At this time, the Director may request additional information from the proponent. Once the requested information has been received, the Minister will have 30 days within which to make a decision or impose conditions on your project. Therefore, the proponent cannot proceed with the project until at least 30 days after the end of the comment period
provided for in the Notice of Completion. Further, the proponent may not proceed after this time if:

  • a Section 16 Order request has been submitted to the ministry regarding potential adverse impacts to constitutionally protected Aboriginal and treaty rights, or
  • the Director has issued a Notice of Proposed order regarding the project.

Members of the public must ensure that concerns are directed to the proponent for a response, and that in the event there
are outstanding concerns regarding potential adverse impacts to constitutionally protected Aboriginal and treaty rights,
