Did you know there are over 800km of sanitary sewer mains underneath our city?

What issues or concerns do you have about our existing sanitary infrastructure?

What do we need to consider to expand that infrastructure as our community grows?

The Study

The City is creating an Integrated Sanitary Master Plan to make sure we meet our sanitary service needs now and in the future. We will be reviewing existing conditions and developing an assessment of alternative solutions. You will have the opportunity to give input on the project objectives and on the proposed alternative solutions. We will then identify a preferred alternative based on our technical review and on the outcomes of our public consultations.

Our study follows an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. For more details, please read the Notice of Study Commencement.

    The City of Kitchener is undertaking an Integrated Sanitary Master Plan. The purpose of this Master Plan is to examine the City’s sanitary infrastructure needs in light of new planning policies, growth projections, and the current needs and issues that exist in our community. The Study is being undertaken within the City limits, as shown on the map.

    The Master Plan will review existing conditions, develop an assessment of alternative solutions for sanitary servicing, and identify the preferred alternative to support planned growth across the City. The preferred alternative will be identified following a technical review of alternatives, as well as input received from agencies, Indigenous communities and stakeholders.

    This EA Study is being undertaken as a Master Plan in accordance with the planning and design process as outlined in the Municipal Class EA document (2000, as amended) which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.
