  • Point Pleasant Water Treatment Plant Expansion Schedule C Class Environmental Assessment

    Utilities Kingston has nearly completed a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) for the

    expansion of the Point Pleasant (formerly known as the Kingston West) Water Treatment Plant located on Sunny Acres Road in the Citys west end. The proposed expansion is to increase the plant capacity from

    45.96 to 80 million litres per day, based on the recommendation from the 2007 Master Plan for Water Supply for the City of Kingston Urban Area. The purpose of this Class EA is to confirm the preferred alternative and

    ensure that the proposed project can be implemented with minimal impact to the environment.

    This project is being planned under Schedule C of the Municipal Class EA. Subject to comments received as a result of this Notice, and the receipt of necessary approvals, Utilities Kingston intends to proceed with the design and construction of this project. The capital budget for this project, excluding

    land acquisition costs, is estimated at $60.5 million plus GST.
