Project Description:

S. Burnett & Associates Limited (SBA) is leading a Schedule B Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Town of Shelburne (the Town) to assess its current water supply system and to determine the best means of meeting demand for the next 20 years.

The Town of Shelburne has experienced rapid population growth over the past 8+ years and additional groundwater is needed to support the Town’s predicted population and current build-out areas.

SBA assessed the Town’s groundwater supply wells to determine their current capacity and has led technical assessments to determine options for increasing supply capacity while meeting Ontario drinking water standards. Several alternatives will be examined as part of this study, and an assessment will be completed to identify the most cost-effective, environmentally sound, and sustainable approach to increasing the capacity of the existing facilities.
