The 2011 Sustainable Halton Water and Wastewater Master Plan identified the potential need for higher pumping capacity at the Junction Street Wastewater Pumping Station (WWPS) in order to adequately service population growth to 2031. Additionally, an opportunity exists to implement a second wastewater forcemain (WWFM) to provide redundancy and compliance with Halton Region’s latest design standards. The map shows the approximate limits of the study area.
Accordingly, Halton Region initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study (Class EA) which considered a wide range of pumping and forcemain upgrade alternatives in order to select the most appropriate station design concept and forcemain alignment. The impact of the upgrade alternatives on social, cultural, economic and natural environments are being evaluated and assessed during the Study.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
