Victoria Street sewage pumping station environmental assessment

Background

The Victoria Street Sewage Pumping Station is reaching the end of its lifecycle and needs to be replaced.

Some of the alternative solutions being considered are:

  • Replacement/upgrade of pumping station components
  • Relocation of pumping station
  • Elimination of pumping station

The solution will be completed in coordination with a lifecycle Infrastructure Renewal Project for the reconstruction of Victoria Street from Lombardo Ave to the west end of Victoria Street. This project is also tentatively scheduled for 2022.

To meet Ministry or Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) requirements, the concrete pumping station chamber must be constructed above the ground by a minimum of 300mm (12 inches).

The Upper Thames River Conservation Authority has advised the project team there may be a possible change to the regulated flood line that would affect all three pump station reconstruction proposals. This change would require the concrete pumping station chamber to be constructed higher than the 300mm (12 inches) MECP requirement.

Study area

The Victoria Street Sewage Pumping Station is located at 47 Victoria Street.

Current status

The Notice of Completion has been issued. The Schedule B Class Environmental Assessment Project File is available for review as part of the 30-day review period.
