The City of Sault Ste. Marie


Notice of Public Information Centre - Stormwater Financing Study

February 28, 2018

Stormwater comes from the rain and melted snow that flows over land. In our city, most stormwater runs off hard surfaces like roofs and driveways, carrying pollution into waterways, and potentially causing flooding along the way.

Managing stormwater protects the health and safety of our community. The City consistently invests in its stormwater management program - including our catch basins, sewers, ditches, and other infrastructure. However, our infrastructure is aging and will need to be renewed on a regular basis to avoid costly repairs in the future.

In addition to the current stormwater management program, Council adopted the Stormwater Management Master Plan and Guidelines (the Master Plan) in 2015. The Master Plan recommends strategies to address stormwater quality and quantity concerns into the future, and recommends that options be considered to fund these strategies.

The Stormwater Financing Study is underway to investigate a sustainable and fair funding source, such as a user fee, to support both the City's current stormwater management program and the implementation of the recommended Master Plan strategies.
