The City of Greater Sudbury has retained R.V. Anderson Associates Limited to initiate a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Study to review alternatives to service the remainder of the Fielding Road Industrial Area with municipal water and sanitary sewers.

Public Input

This project is being planned in accordance with Schedule 'B” of the Municipal Engineers' Association Municipal Class Environment Assessment for Water and Wastewater Projects, an approved planning document that describes the process that a municipality must follow in order to meet the requirements of the Environmental Assessment Act. This Class EA will follow the prescribed process for a Schedule ‘B' undertaking.

The Class EA approach allows for a comprehensive evaluation of environmental effects of alternatives and alternative methods to carry out a project, as well as a requirement to solicit and consider public input.

Upon completion of the Class EA study, a Project File will be available for a 30 day public review period. It will document the planning process, options that were considered, how public input was evaluated and will make recommendations. The public review period will be publicized through local newspaper advertisements.

We are interested in receiving any comments or concerns that the public may have about this project. The public's comments and input will be considered for inclusion into the planning of this study. All information submitted will become part of the public record with the exception of personal information.

Background

Fielding Road Industrial Area is located between Municipal Road 55 and Highway 17, and between Kelly Lake and the Walden Industrial Park. This area has been selected by Greater Sudbury Council for further review to address a current shortage of serviced industrial land.

Fielding Road Industrial Area is important for business development in the City of Greater Sudbury. Many businesses, including a high percentage related to the mining industry, have located to this area. The area is zoned Heavy Industrial and Extractive Industrial and holds great potential for further development.

A small portion of the park is currently serviced with municipal water and sanitary sewers; however, properties along Fielding Road, Duhamel Road and Nelson Road must rely on private wells, field beds or other means of supplying sewer and water services. Lack of municipal water and sanitary sewers has served as a deterrent to further development.

The objective of the Class EA Study is to review alternatives that will provide water and sanitary sewer service to properties along Fielding Road, Duhamel Road and Nelson Road. The preferred alternative from this Study will form the basis of a water and sewer servicing strategy for the Fielding Road Industrial Area.
