Port Perry Water Supply Class Environmental Assessment

Client: Region of Durham
Location: Communities of Port Perry and Prince Albert, Ontario

Project Description:

R.V. Anderson Associates Limited (RVA) was retained by the Region of Durham to undertake a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for the additional supply of potable water for the communities of Port Perry and Prince Albert.

The existing supply is sourced from three local wells with a total firm capacity of 60 L/s with high iron and hydrogen sulphide levels. An existing standpipe with a useful volume of 1.25 ML provides storage for fire and emergency use. It was established that Port Perry requires an additional 45 L/s firm water supply capacity to meet future demand, and an additional 4.5 ML of useful storage volume to meet MOE guidelines for fire storage.

Five alternative solutions were presented to the public to increase the supply capacity and to improve the aesthetics:

  1. Treatment of existing ground water supply
  2. Development of new local wells
  3. Treatment of Lake Scugog surface water
  4. Interconnection with Uxbridge well water supply
  5. Interconnection with a Lake Ontario-sourced water supply

In addition, three possible storage solutions were presented, namely elevated, in-ground low elevation (requiring pumping), and in-ground high elevation (flow by gravity).

Findings were presented to the public and First Nations at Public Information Centres.
