Draft Wastewater Allocation Policy 

Water, Wastewater and Stormwater infrastructure is essential for sustaining and growing the city. Brantford’s first Master Servicing Plan (MSP) for these services was developed and approved by City Council in 2014. An update to the plan is underway to address the City’s growth needs until 2041. Work on implementing and updating the MSP identified limitations in the capacity of two of the City’s nine wastewater pumping stations.

At its July 2018 meeting, Brantford City Council approved the development of a comprehensive set of recommendations to address the allocation of servicing capacity and station limitations including:

  • Maintaining and repairing the wastewater pumping stations
  • Improving performance
  • Upgrades to meet future capacity needs
  • Short-term interim solutions for the Empey and Fifth Avenue Pumping stations
  • Updating the 2019-2027 Capital budget to reflect the study findings
  • Development of an Allocation Tool to track capacity
  • Development of a Wastewater Allocation Policy and By-law based framework, informed by stakeholder consultation
