Municipal Class Environmental Assessment - Water and Wastewater Studies for the Settlement Area of Sebringville

2794848 Ontario Limited (“Developer”) and The Township of Perth South are cooperatively commencing a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (“Class EA”) Schedule C to assess the alternative solutions to meet the projected demands and identify and evaluate the alternative designs for the water and wastewater treatment systems in the Sebringville Settlement Area (“Village”). Costs for the study are being paid by the Developer. The Township is a co-proponent of the study.

The evaluation of servicing for the community is also associated with a proposed residential subdivision that is subject to Planning Act approvals by Perth County and the Township of Perth South. The approval of the residential subdivision and the Class EA are two separate but related aspects, and public comments are sought regarding both aspects through the integration of the Class EA and the Planning Act approvals (Section A.2.9). Perth County and the Township of Perth South will have input to the Class EA and will review and administer the Planning Act components. The attached map shows the location of the proposed Plan of Subdivision and the Sebringville boundary. The Sebringville Settlement Area is the study area for the Class EA.

In accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, the project will include a detailed public and agency consultation process. The Class EA process is intended to assess alternative solutions and system designs, which include “Do nothing” as well as the establishment of new municipal services, private communal services, and/ or expansion of the existing services. As the study documents are prepared, they will be available for viewing from the Township Office located at 3191 Road 122 in St. Pauls, or online at www.perthsouth.ca. or www.getinvolvedperthsouth.ca.

Azimuth will be reviewing all available data including current and historic environmental monitoring data for the Site and updating field studies such that a detailed evaluation may be conducted for the Site in accordance with all applicable guidelines and approval requirements established by the Ministry of Environment, Conservation, and Parks (MECP). The public is encouraged to view information, participate in the study, and provide comments directly or at public open houses. Comments on the project will be incorporated into the final Environmental Study Report.

Azimuth is contacting surrounding property owners, government agencies, and First Nations communities in the area to identify and discuss their concerns regarding the project. The first public open house is expected to take place in spring or summer 2022 to discuss alternatives and opportunities and constraints for the various alternatives.

The project schedule is being developed now and details regarding the first open house will be advertised in early 2022. Any questions, comments, or requests for information can be directed to the people listed below. You can also contact them to be signed up for an information mailing list for the project. We respectfully ask that all feedback be provided by Friday, May 27th, 2022.
