The Environmental Assessment Act sets out a planning and decision-making process so that potential environmental effects are considered before a project begins.

Highway 417 Industrial Park Water And Sanitary Servicing

The Township of Russell has completed a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Study Addendum to select a preferred method to provide the Highway 417 Industrial Park (“Industrial Park”) with water and wastewater servicing. However, based on additional field studies and new information changing the depths of key infrastructure/construction technologies, the preferred water and wastewater servicing alternative would require re-evaluation.

The Addendum is being placed in the public record for review and comment in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment.

Interested persons should provide written comments to the municipality on the proposal within the 30- calendar day period beginning on June 10, 2021 and ending on July 9, 2021. Only the proposed change to the approved Project outlined in the Addendum is open to comment.
