Cainsville Watertower

The County of Brant invites you to engage with us as we evaluate ways to provide water, wastewater and stormwater servicing in Cainsville to the 2051 planning horizon.

The study will consider and evaluate alternatives to provide water and wastewater servicing and stormwater management to the entire Cainsville community as shown in the map. This includes:

  • Expanding services to currently unserviced areas within the settlement boundary and
  • Identifying the preferred drinking water supply, storage and distribution, the preferred wastewater treatment and sanitary sewage collection alternative and the preferred stormwater management alternatives to prepare for long term growth.

    What is the timing and cost?

    Richard asked about 1 year ago

    Thanks for your question. We’re currently still reviewing the various water, wastewater and stormwater options, so detailed cost estimates have not been developed yet. We will be developing cost estimates for the various options and presenting them at a second public meeting that will occur in the spring of 2022. Once the preferred alternatives are confirmed and the Class EA study is finalized, the County will immediately proceed to detailed design and construction of the initial phases.

    Our preferred drinking water source is the one we have now: our well. But there is t unlimited water in the water table. Developments must be done in a sustainable way without compromising our water supply with unrestricted or aggressive development. It’s far more important to have high speed internet and natural gas infrastructure. Alternatively, give us options for solar installation so we are not so dependent on the unstable grid we’re on now.

    Thank you for your comments. We agree that the natural environment and safe drinking water should be protected. All alternatives that are considered in the current study for Cainsville will be evaluated against these two very important criteria, among others. Please feel free to join us at the October 28th virtual public meeting.
