Notice of Public Information Centre - Fort Creek Aqueduct

May 30, 2016

The Study

The City of Sault Ste Marie has initiated a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for the upgrading or replacement of the Fort Creek Aqueduct along Wellington Street West through the Steelton area. The creek was channelized into an underground concrete box culvert around 1912-1917 and is located under the south sidewalk on Wellington Street West. The existing aqueduct has structural deficiencies and some portions are undersized to carry major rainfall events.

The Process

The project is being planned under Schedule B of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process and a key component of the study is consultation with interested stakeholders (public and review agencies).

To facilitate this, a Public Information Centre (PIC) will be held:

Wednesday, June 1, 2016 - 3 to 7 p.m.
Steelton Senior Citizen Centre, Library Room
235 Wellington Street West

Consultants and municipal staff will be available to discuss the problems associated with the Fort Creek aqueduct, review the alternate solutions, and to get input from the public and regulatory agencies.

The public is invited on a come-and-go basis anytime between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. to visit and provide input or to have questions answered. Upon completion of the studies a Project File will be prepared and made available for additional public review and comment.
