Municipal Class Enviromental Assessment Study Henderson Sewage Pumping Station

The Regional Municipality of York is initiating a Schedule B
Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) study
to determine the preferred approach to redirecting the
wastewater flows from the Henderson Drive area in the
Town of Aurora.

The area south of Henderson Drive, between Bathurst Street and Yonge Street, has been identified as the service area from where wastewater flows can be redirected, via a
proposed sewage pumping station, to the existing sanitary
sewer on Yonge Street.

The ability to redirect flows from the Henderson Drive
area will be essential in maintaining normal operations
at the Aurora Sewage Pumping Station (SPS) during high
wastewater flows due to extreme weather events. The
preferred solution will also help support wastewater
servicing for the Town of Aurora.
