Southwest Brandon Wastewater Servicing Project

 

Southwest Brandon Wastewater Servicing Project - Engagement Process

Recent council and community feedback on the southwest borrowing by-law has identified the need for improved understanding as we move forward with growing our community. To achieve this purpose, the City will have a 4-stage engagement process, including two special council meetings, a public open house, and a second public hearing to provide information on planning and paying for growth.

  1. Planning For Growth - Special Council Meeting #1

 What

The City has determined the southwest area will be a focus for residential and commercial growth. New wastewater infrastructure is required to support continued development.

Why

The existing area wastewater network is nearing capacity; lift station(s) are required to direct the wastewater to the nearest acceptable location and to overcome topographic challenges with the desired service area.

Project Funding

City Administration is proposing a debenture through general borrowing, requesting a borrowing authority of $30 million. Debentures will be issued in series based on cash flow requirements over the various project phases.

Wastewater Servicing Definitions

Lift Station: A pumping station that moves wastewater from a lower elevation to a higher elevation. Also provides ability to direct wastewater from one point in the collection system to another.

Wastewater Trunk Sewer: Large diameter sewer pipe that allows for flow by gravity. Residential and commercial developments connect to the trunk sewer, which directs the wastewater to the lift station.

Forcemain: A pressurized sewer pipe that leaves the lift station and discharges wastewater into the downstream collection system.
