The City of Quinte West has identified the need for additional pressure and flow to support the water demands of future expansion in northwest Trenton. Currently, the primary transmission main to the northwest boundary of Trenton is a single 300mm watermain along Telephone Road.
A Class Environmental Assessment (EA) study has been initiated to determine a preferred solution that provides improved water services to the northwest of Trenton. Options for consideration include an additional transmission main, from a connection point on Highway 2, near Walmart, to Tate Road (see map). This option may require additional valve stations to achieve required pressures at the northwest boundary.
The City of Quinte West is undertaking a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Study to identify, develop and implement a solution to address future capacity needs and existing sanitary sewer issues in the west end of Trenton. The study area for this Class EA is shown in the map below. The West End Trunk Sanitary Sewer services a large area that is projected to experience substantial growth. Therefore, this study is to ensure reliable sanitary service is provided to existing areas and future growth areas.
