Public Notice: PEEL WASTEWATER TREATMENT SOLUTIONS NOTICE OF STUDY COMPLETION G.E. Booth Water Resource Recovery Facility Schedule C Class Environmental Assessment

By March 14, 2024Resources, Ward 1


The Region of Peel will experience significant growth over the next 20+ years with a 40 percent increase in people and jobs anticipated by 2041. In the Region of Peel, wastewater from users is collected through a network of sewers and pumping stations and treated at either the G.E. Booth Water Resource Recovery Facility (WRRF) or the Clarkson WRRF. As the population grows, there is insufficient capacity at the WRRFs to meet the future wastewater treatment needs. That is why the Region initiated two Schedule C Class Environmental Assessments (EAs) for the G.E. Booth and Clarkson WRRFs to identify and develop preferred solutions for wastewater treatment and biosolids management to meet approved regional growth. While the early stages (Phases 1 and 2 of the Class EA process) of these studies were completed in parallel, the later stages (Phases 3, 4, & 5 of the Class EA process) of the Clarkson study were advanced ahead of the G.E. Booth study. The G.E. Booth WRRF Schedule C Class EA was recently completed and is the subject of this Notice of Study Completion.


The Process:

The G.E. Booth WRRF study followed a Schedule ‘C’ Class EA process, including:
• Phase 1: A review of background information and identification of the problem/opportunity statement
• Phase 2: An evaluation of alternative solutions
• Phase 3: An evaluation of alternative technologies and site layouts for the preferred solutions
• Phase 4: Documentation of the process and its results in an Environmental Study Report (ESR)
• Phase 5: Conceptual design and implementation
Public and agency stakeholder consultation, including communications with Indigenous Communities, was and continues to be an important part of the Class EA process.

G.E. Booth WRRF Environmental Study Report (ESR):

The ESR will be available for a 45-day public review period starting March 13th, 2024 and ending April 27th, 2024, in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class EA process. An electronic copy of the ESR will be available for public review on the Region of Peel project webpage at:
