Majority of servicing infrastructure privately owned and opperated
Private servicing not of suitable capacity and location for future developments.
Servicing and Stormwater – Resolution:
Internal private networks replaced by public networks in municipal right-of-ways.
New public systems
External networks improved to support future development
Wet Weather Flow Master Plan Goals:
Water Balance – erosion control, groundwater recharge, downstream habitat protection
Water Quality – for protection of water resources
Water Quantity – peak flow control, flood management, runoff control
Recommended Stormwater collection system
Recommended Wastewater Collection System
Servicing and Stormwater System Cost Analysis Item Cost Water System $5,110,000 Wastewater System $10,630,000 Stormwater Trunk Sewer $5,160,000 Total $20,900,000
Servicing and Stormwater - Strengths RESIDENTS *Improved water and sewer services *Plan forward thinking -future needs EMPLOYMENT *Existing and future business located in the north- east side will benefit. *Networks maintained by the city. DEVELOPERS *Upgrade done before development, no disruption after project constructed. Less future cost.
Servicing and Stormwater - Weaknesses RESIDENTS *Traffic jams. *Unpleasant streetscape. *Possible difficulty in mobility for people with disabilities. EMPLOYMENT *businesses may suffer losses during construction. *Loss of control. DEVELOPERS *construction has to be held off until new infrastructure in place.
Servicing and Stormwater - Opportunities RESIDENTS *greater variety of water usage ex. swimming pools, community farming, green houses etc. EMPLOYMENT *improved value of business. *greater business variety. DEVELOPERS *possibility to develop new areas = profit
Servicing and Stormwater – Threats RESIDENTS * new infrastructure, may result in higher taxes. EMPLOYMENT * new environmental/ sustainable regulations - higher operating costs? *new taxes/charges. *new business = more competition DEVELOPERS *higher land development charges. *complications political / bureaucratic reasons.
Servicing and Stormwater – Conclusion The plan provides for the develpoment of public water, sanitary and stormwater sewer systems in order to support further growth and development within the plan.
