Project Description:

SBA was retained by the Town of Shelburne to provide engineering and environmental services to complete a Schedule ‘C’ Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to increase the rated capacity of the Town’s existing Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP). The WPCP is currently at capacity and based on the anticipated population growth the plant will not meet the Town’s long-term demand.

SBA is currently leading the EA to determine the best option for increasing the wastewater treatment capacity based on the increased demand resulting from anticipated population growth over the next 20-years. The EA includes a weighted assessment of alternative solutions to achieve increased wastewater treatment capacity and presents the preferred solution which considers public, First Nations and Métis, and agency input, as well as an evaluation of economic, environmental, technical and social considerations. The EA will also include an evaluation of different engineering design concepts for the preferred solution.
