Supply capacity increase for Palgrave Well 4


The Region of Peel owns and operates the Palgrave – Caledon East Drinking Water System a groundwater-based system, supplying drinking water to the communities of Caledon East, Palgrave, Palgrave Estates, Mono Road, Albion, Centreville, and Cedar Mills, in the Town of Caledon. The system is currently supplied by six (6) municipal groundwater sources located in Palgrave and Caledon East.

Class EA study process

The Region is undertaking a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment study to evaluate and identify the necessary upgrades/modifications resulting from a proposed increase in water taking capacity of the existing municipal production well, Palgrave Well #4, located at 9 Buckstown Trail. An increase of water taking of Palgrave Well #4 will provide additional supply capacity to the existing Caledon East/Palgrave Drinking Water System to meet the long-term water needs of the serviced area.

The Class EA study is now being conducted as a Schedule ‘C’ project according to the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment document (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 & 2015). The study includes an evaluation of alternative solutions and alternative design concepts, an assessment of potential impacts associated with the required works/infrastructure and development of measures to mitigate identified impacts, as well as public and review agency consultation.
