Oxford County communities are growing and so is our water and wastewater infrastructure. Supplying clean, safe drinking water to our residents and industry users and properly collecting and treating wastewater has a direct impact on the health of our community and the environment.

The Water and Wastewater Master Plan will set out the long-term water and wastewater servicing strategies to support existing needs and accommodate future growth in population and employment through to the year 2046. The Plan will ensure that the infrastructure improvements we make today will support the long-term growth and goals of Oxford County.



About the Plan

The Water and Wastewater Master Plan will consist of:

  • a comprehensive background review of water and wastewater services, including water distribution, wastewater collection, treatment facilities, storage towers and more;
  • a situation analysis of the County's current water and wastewater needs and projected changes to population, development, social and economic conditions, economy, facilities, and land use and planning initiatives;
  • a summary of public feedback;
  • a review of best practices; and,
  • list of recommendations and proposals to guide the County’s future water and wastewater services.


About the Class EA process for Master Plans

The Water and Wastewater Master Plan is being undertaken in accordance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process for Master Plans, which ensures:

  1. all reasonable alternatives, including "Do Nothing," are considered; and
  2. that a preferred alternative will have minimal impact on the natural, cultural, social, and economic environment.


Have your say

Public participation and feedback is an important part of identifying the servicing needs and priorities of communities throughout Oxford County. All of Oxford’s residents and businesses are encouraged to provide comments at any time through the master planning process.

Here is how you can have your say.
