Notice of amendment

Village of Limoges Potable Water and Wastewater Master Plan – Drinking Water Supply

In 2013, The Nation Municipality completed the Potable Water and Wastewater Master Plan for the Village of Limoges, which reviewed water and wastewater infrastructure requirements to satisfy long term development and growth.  The preferred alternative for drinking water supply included: addition of two wells at a new site with a 5.5km feeder main to connect to the existing feeder main; expansion of the Limoges WTP and pumping station; new water storage facility; and, expansion of the water distribution network.  The new water storage facility (at grade water reservoir) was completed in 2018.  The other recommendations relating to water supply and treatment have not been implemented.

Recent discussions between The Nation Municipality and the City of Clarence-Rockland have resulted in the development of a new option to augment the water supply to the Village of Limoges, which was not previously considered in the Master Plan.  An amendment to the Master Plan has been initiated to evaluate this new option.

The Master Plan amendment will be limited to water supply alternatives and only these changes will be open for review.  Water distribution and storage alternatives will not be reviewed through the amendment.

The water supply component of the Master Plan is considered a Schedule C project and is subject to the full Five Phase Planning Process as specified by the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks. No changes are proposed to Phases 1 and 2 of the Environment Assessment (EA) process.  The amendment will cover Phases 3 and 4 of the EA process only to review and evaluate the newly identified Alternative Design Concept.

A public open house will be held in Fall 2019 to present the amendment information.

Public consultation is an important part of the process and we are interested in hearing any comments that you may have about this study.  Please send any comments or information requests to:
