Public Notice of Public Consultation: Drumbo Wastewaster Class Environmental Assessment

Please be advised of the following Public Consulation regarding the Drumbo Class EA for wastewater treatment.



Oxford County is currently undertaking a Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) to develop a wastewater treatment plan for the Community of Drumbo, to service existing and planned growth in the community in a cost-effective, environmentally sound and sustainable manner. To meet the wastewater treatment requirements of future growth, the Drumbo Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) will need to be expanded beyond its existing rated capacity. The study is being undertaken as a Schedule C project in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Municipal Engineers Association, June 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015).

Oxford County owns and operates the Drumbo WWTP, which provides treatment for wastewater generated in the community of Drumbo. The Drumbo WWTP, constructed in 1993, is a Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) with tertiary filtration and UV disinfection with a current rated capacity of 300 cubic metres per day. Flows to the plant are approaching the Certificate of Approval rated capacity, and community growth is expected to increase flows beyond this capacity in the near future.

Public input and comments are an important component of the Class EA process. This final Public Consultation Centre (PCC) has been scheduled to provide information to the public on the alternative solutions considered, the evaluation criteria and methodology, the evaluation of the alternative solutions, the recommended preferred solution, next steps and timing. The PCC will be held as follows:

Thursday, July 19, 2018 Drumbo Agricultural Hall
5:00 p.m. — 7:00 p.m. 42 Centre Street Drumbo, Ontario

The PCC will be a drop-in open house format, with project information posted on display boards. County staff and their consultants will also be available to provide further explanation and to receive your comments and questions on the Class EA recommendations.

Information on the Drumbo WWTP Class EA is posted on the Oxford County website. Please contact either of the following project team members if you have any questions or comments about the study, or if you would like to be added to the mailing list to receive future notifications for the study.
