Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Stormwater Master Plan Servicing Study - Bayfield

NOTICE OF COMMENCEMENT


THE PROJECT:
The Municipality of Bluewater has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) process to develop a Stormwater Servicing Master Plan for the Bayfield Settlement area. The Master Plan will inventory and evaluate existing stormwater facilities within Bayfield and investigate the most cost effective and efficient manner to provide additional stormwater servicing, where required, within established and future development areas of the community.

When completed, the Master Plan will recommend a stormwater servicing strategy that could be implemented in phases within the established areas of Bayfield, as well as recommending best practices and strategies for addressing stormwater servicing within future development areas of the community.

THE ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT PROCESS:
The investigation is being planned as a Master Plan project under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment document. Master Plan projects incorporate a screening process that involves consultation with the public, government review agencies and affected property owners. Public input and comment are therefore invited for incorporation into the project.

PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT:
The consultation program for this Class EA Master Plan process includes several opportunities for public involvement including a questionnaire and public information meeting. Details related to the public meeting will be provided at a later date. For the initial phase of the program, public input into the planning and design of this project will be received until September 20th, 2013. Additional opportunities for comment will be provided as the process proceeds. Any comments collected in conjunction with this Class EA will be maintained on file for use during the project and may be included in project documentation. With the exception of personal information, all comments will become part of the public record.
