The Municipality of Lakeshore is expanding the Denis St. Pierre Water Pollution Control Plant. Mayor Bain and members of Council for the Municipality of Lakeshore broke ground for the multimillion-dollar expansion on November 30, 2021.
“This is a remarkable investment, but not just in the amount of water we can treat,” said Mayor Tom Bain. “It’s an investment in the needs of our community. It’s an investment made on behalf of Lakeshore’s future citizens, business owners, and all those who will call our community home. Before we know it, we’ll be back in 2023 with scissors to cut the ribbon and mark the next chapter of Lakeshore’s future.”
The expansion is a critical investment in wastewater treatment capacity for the Municipality’s northwestern urban areas. The expansion will increase treatment capacity by 70 per cent. The project, expected to be completed in the summer of 2023, will be funded through Wastewater Development Charges.
“Thanks to everyone who has helped make this project a reality,” said Truper McBride, chief administrative officer of the Municipality of Lakeshore. “While we are ahead of schedule breaking ground, we’ve continued to maintain a balanced approach to accommodate new development within the framework we developed in 2020. We’ve also continued communication with local developers to advise them of our constraints and the expected timelines for application approvals.”
