NOTICE

Registration of Undertaking
Environmental Impact Assessment Regulation – Cap-Brulé WWTP Upgrades
Clean Environment Act

Opportunity for Public Comment

On January 7, 2021, the Greater Shediac Sewerage Commission registered the following project with the N.B. Department of the Environment and Local Government (NBDELG) in accordance with Section 5(1) and Schedule “A” of the Environmental Impact Assessment Regulation: Cap-Brulé Wastewater Treatment Facility. The undertaking is currently registered for review with the Department of Environment and Local Government under the Environmental Impact Assessment Regulation, Clean Act.

The purpose of the proposed undertaking is for a major upgrade of the Cap-Brulé Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) and its aging infrastructure. Although the existing facility still meets all present-day effluent requirements as part of the Province’s Approval to Operate, the GSSC has made significant investments in long term planning over the past several years to prepare for the appropriate funding program opportunity to advance its plan to upgrade the WWTF for service into the decades ahead. The project will include the construction of new highly advanced wastewater facilities for screening and grit removal with blowers, UV disinfection, a moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR), a new pumped outfall to the Northumberland Strait, a new influent pumping station, refurbishment of the three existing lagoon cells, and 2,500 meters of on-site wastewater piping. The project would be located along Cap-Brulé Rd.
