Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent proposes to construct and operate both a water supply and distribution system in addition to a sanitary sewage collection and disposal system. The water supply for the proposed system will be provided from a reservoir created by a dam to be constructed on Fairfax Brook, approximately 2.8 kilometres south west from the town’s main road. From the reservoir, a water transmission line will extend to the town along a newly developed access road to a water disinfection facility. The water distribution system mains will deliver water to all the community’s residents and businesses.
