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 were invited for incorporation into the project.
