The City of Greater Sudbury is undertaking a Water and Wastewater Master Plan under a Class Environmental Assessment.

Vermilion River Stewardship (VRS) would like to congratulate the City of Greater Sudbury for taking a big-picture perspective to its current water and wastewater treatment challenges. The City’s water and wastewater infrastructure is spread out widely to accommodate the individual municipal operations; however, with the amalgamation of all the smaller municipalities into the City of Greater Sudbury, it makes sense to consider the best overall plan for the entire City. This is a great opportunity to consolidate, bring efficiencies, and to plan for a new high level sewage treatment plant/s with much improved environmental protection and sustainable water management services.

VRS is very supportive of the master plan approach and looks forward to fully participating in the Class EA and master plan process.
