Separation of Sewers on Lorne, Gladstone, Melrose, Henry and William Avenue 

This project will include preparation of plans and specifications to obtain approvals necessary for tendering and constructing this sewer separation project.  Works will include sewer, roadway, sidewalk and lighting.  The existing 71 homes are currently serviced by an aging combination sewer that flows downstream to separated sewer system and combined sewer overflows to Lake Erie.  The eligible costs are limited to public/municipal property and assets.  This project is currently in the engineering/design stage and is partly funded through Infrastructure Canada.

 

Total Project Cost - $200,000

Program Contributions (Eligible Expenditures) - $100,000

Provincial Contributions - $50,000

 Separation of Sewers on Parkdale and Coronation Street
This project will include preparation of plans and specifications to obtain approvals necessary for tendering and constructing this sewer separation project.  Works will include sewer, roadway, sidewalk and lighting.  The project affects 56 homes that are currently serviced by an aging combination sewer that flows downstream to a separated sewer system.  The eligible costs are limited to public/municipal property and assets.  Parkdale was reconstructed in 2017 and Coronation is awaiting approval.

 

Total Project Cost - $952,000

Program Contributions (Eligible Expenditures) - $431,000

Provincial Contributions - $215,500

Municipal Contribution - $215,500

 Seacliff Trunk Sanitary Sewer Study 
This study will provide guidance on the steps and costs to separate and remove combined sewage from the trunk, and provide sewer service to areas along Lake Erie.  As the Seacliff Trunk Sanitary Sewer currently accepts sanitary and combined sewage from the southern portion of Leamington, servicing additional areas is not permitted by the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change regardless of available capacity.  Once the Seacliff Trunk Sanitary Sewer is fully separated, it will allow for future sanitary servicing of existing homes and properties along Lake Erie that are currently using septic systems.  This study is complete and is partly funded through Infrastructure Canada.

 

Total Project Cost - $102,852

Program Contributions (Eligible Expenditures) - $51,426

Provincial Contributions - $25,713

Municipal Contribution - $25,713

 Southwest Leamington Storm Water Management Pond and Outlet Environmental Study and Design
This proposed project is multi-category including wastewater and stormwater components, but primarily stormwater.  The Southwest Leamington Storm Water Management Pond Outlet project will support further separation of storm and sanitary sewers in Leamington by eliminating the continuing need to use an existing asset as a combined sewer.  A new stormwater outlet will: provide enhanced treatment and storage of stormwater, eliminate combined sewer overflows and allow additional sanitary collection and conveyance for the existing and future developments in Southwest Leamington by optimizing an existing asset (conversion of existing combined sewer to dedicated sanitary sewer).  This environmental Study assignment will address enhanced service and improved environmental outcomes by providing the planning solution, preferred alternative and preliminary design for the management of surface water in the southwest quadrant of Leamington.  Particularly, our Study Area comprises approximately 110 Ha, including 25 Ha of existing residential and institutional landuses serviced by aging combined sewers.  The remaining 85 Ha are designated for urban, residential development.  This project has not yet commenced but will be partly funded through Infrastructure Canada.

 

Total Project Cost - $175,000

Program Contributions (Eligible Expenditures) - $87,500

Provincial Contributions - $43,750

Municipal Contribution - $43,750

Smart Water Meter Network Project

In 2019, the Municipality of Leamington will be completing a project to install a new smart water meter network to improve the efficiency and reliability of the water system. KTI Utility Services (KTI) has been contracted by the Municipality to carry out the water meter and radio transmitter installations.

The project includes the installation of new smart water meters and an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) system comprised of radio transmitters and network components.  The AMI system will provide real-time meter reading data to the Municipality to help identify possible leaks or flow problems and help ensure bill accuracy to avoid unnecessary water costs.

This is a mandatory program in which all customers will require the installation of a radio transmitter.  Customers with water meters more than five years old, or not capable of integrating with the smart meter network, will also require a water meter replacement.

There will be no cost to the customer for the equipment or the installation. Participation in this program is mandatory.

Once you receive correspondence from KTI that includes your account number, you will be able to book your appointment online or by phone.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do we need new water meters?

The majority of the meters in the Municipality were installed in 1996 and have a typical life of 10-20 years. The existing meters will be replaced with new water meter technology which is compatible with the latest meter reading technology that offers benefits such as improved customer service, system operation and environmental benefits.

The meter technology currently installed at your home/business will determine if your water meter must be replaced. Not all properties will need to have their water meter changed, however a new radio transmitter will need to be installed at all properties.

 What is a water meter? How does it differ from a transmitter?

A water meter is a device that records water consumption. Your water meter is connected to a transmitter, which takes consumption information and sends (transmits) it to a remote reading device that collects this data. This information is then used for billing purposes.

 Is this appointment mandatory?

Yes. All customers that have an indoor water meter must schedule an appointment to have a radio transmitter installed and depending on the age and state of your water meter, your water meter may also require replacement. For those customers that have a water meter installed in an outdoor pit, no appointment will be necessary to install the radio transmitter and/or new water meter.

 When do I have to book my appointment?

KTI Utility Services will notify customers when they are booking appointments in your area. You will receive a letter from KTI outlining the process of booking an appointment. When you receive your letter, please schedule your appointment as soon as possible to ensure the project remains on schedule.
