The 2011 Sustainable Halton Water and Wastewater Master Plan identified the potential need for higher pumping capacity at the Junction Street Wastewater Pumping Station (WWPS) in order to adequately service population growth to 2031. Additionally, an opportunity exists to implement a second wastewater forcemain (WWFM) to provide redundancy and compliance with Halton Region’s latest design standards. The map shows the approximate limits of the study area.
Accordingly, Halton Region initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study (Class EA) which considered a wide range of pumping and forcemain upgrade alternatives in order to select the most appropriate station design concept and forcemain alignment. The impact of the upgrade alternatives on social, cultural, economic and natural environments are being evaluated and assessed during the Study.

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.
