Secondary Water Supply System
St. Thomas Area Secondary Water Supply System (EMPS and Transmission Mains)
In November 1998, the Ministry of the Environment transferred the pumping station and the transmission main to a Joint Board of Management consisting of the City of St. Thomas, the Municipality of Central Elgin and the Township of Southwold.
The City of St. Thomas was delegated as the Administrating Municipality for the St. Thomas Area Secondary Water Supply System.
The St. Thomas Secondary Water Supply System receives water from the Elgin Area Water Treatment Plant which is sent to the Elgin-Middlesex Pumping Station (EMPS) and then enters the transmission main of the St. Thomas Area Secondary System. For more information on the construction, capacity, function and location of the Secondary System please see Report ES109-15 in the October 22 Agenda of the Joint Board of Management meeting.
The cost of supplying water services through the St. Thomas Secondary Water Supply System is recovered through the blended supply rate, which forms part of the St. Thomas and Suburban Service Area Rate. An updated rate study has been prepared by Watson, and recommended a water rate forecast for the period of 2010-2019. Please review the Water Rate Study for more information.
The Joint Board of Management meets periodically throughout the year. The following is a listing of the Agendas and Minutes from these meetings:
Please be advised that construction will start on Elm Street from Centennial Avenue to east of Tyke Road for underground storm sewer installation. The construction will start on Monday, May 1, 2017 with traffic control and lane restriction in place until the end of May 2017. Please follow traffic control signs and personnel on site in order to navigate through the construction zone safely.
The City is excited to announce the Edward Street Road Rehabilitation Project will start in April. The Burwell Road Rehabilitation project will begin after Edward Street has been completed. Construction is expected to be complete in July 2017. For more information visit the Construction Projects page.
