Cap-Brulé Wastewater Treatment Facility Upgrade

Public meeting: May 5, 2022 at 3:00 p.m. Deadline for comments: May 18, 2022 at 3:00 p.m.

On January 7, 2021, the proponent, the Greater Shediac Sewerage Commission (GSSC), registered an undertaking for the Cap-Brulé Wastewater Treatment Facility upgrade project, for evaluation, with the New Brunswick Department of Environment and Local Government (NBDELG) in accordance with Section 5(1) and Schedule “A” of the Environmental Impact Assessment Regulation of the Clean Environment Act. Initial public consultations occurred in the spring of 2021. A summary of the questions and the responses emanating from that process is available at the locations listed below. As a follow-up to the initial consultation process, an additional study titled “Effluent Dispersion Study” has been completed. The purpose of this new consultation process is to provide an opportunity for questions and comments on the findings of that specific study.

The purpose of the proposed undertaking is 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. The project would 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 Road.

The proponent’s registration documents can be examined at the following locations: 

Any comment or question should be submitted directly to the proponent, on or before May 18, 2022, at 3:00 p.m., at the following locations:
