Client: City of Belleville
Location: Belleville, Ontario
Size: 200 km sanitary sewer, one major pressure sewer, three main pumping stations, 10 small sub-area pumping stations, and a single 54.5 MLD wastewater treatment plant

J.L. Richards & Associates Limited (JLR) was retained by the City of Belleville (City) to complete a Wet Weather and Wastewater Servicing Master Plan as per the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) to identify specific projects and initiatives that will ensure continued, effective, and optimal communal wastewater servicing for current and future growth areas within the City.

Phase 1 of the Master Plan involved identifying existing conditions, problems and constraints to form the basis for solutions development. The JLR team developed a hydraulic model of the City’s sanitary sewer system using storm water management model (SWMM) software and completed a desktop treatment, condition, and capacity assessment of the  wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) and sewer system.

Phase 2 involved the review and evaluation of several alternatives for the WWTP, pump stations and sewer network. Ultimately a comprehensive strategy was developed that identified what specific projects were required in the short, mid and long terms with an estimated overall long-term expenditure of over $150M.
