Town of Shelburne Long-Term Well Project

Projects that were undergoing a comprehensive study at the time the provisions of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 came into force will continue to follow the requirements of the former Act. Under the former Act, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is responsible for conducting the comprehensive study of this project.

The Town of Shelburne is proposing to develop a new water supply production well. The proposed well site is located approximately three kilometres west of the Town of Shelburne on 2nd Line southwest. The proposal consists of conveying groundwater from the proposed well site via a water main constructed for the project along existing right-of-ways to a connection with the existing water supply system infrastructure. The proposed water main route is approximately four kilometres in length, and follows 2nd Line southwest to Provincial Highway 89, then proceeds eastward along Highway 89 until connecting with the Town of Shelburne's existing water supply system.
