Schedule B Class Environmental Assessment

Deseronto Mill Pond – Stormwater Outfall Remediation

Town of Deseronto

The project aims to improve water quality using conventional approaches to treat the stormwater which currently drains, untreated, directly into the Mill Pond and then to the Bay of Quinte. The project is a cooperative effort between Environment Canada’s Great Lakes Sustainability Fund, Ministry of Environment’s Canada-Ontario Agreement for the Great Lakes, The Town of Deseronto, and the Quinte Conservation Authority. This project is being planned under Schedule B of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment.

The decision matrix for the undertaking has determined that the use of an underground oil and grit separator unit will best address the concerns of the public while improving water quality within the Bay of Quinte.

Project plans and other information can be viewed at the following location:
