Sewer Process Timeline
Last updated December 17, 2019
2009 – 2018
Study, Planning and Feasibility Assessment
The RM conducted extensive study with experts to assess affordable, long-term solutions. Specific work included a Concept Plan for Schanzenfeld and Reinfeld (2009, completed by Genivar) and a Wastewater Feasibility Study (2011, completed by AECOM).
2015 - 2018
Engineering and Design
The design and engineering of a wastewater system to serve Reinfeld and Schanzenfeld; used to arrive at costs and apply for funding.
Wastewater Capacity Agreement Signed
The RM of Stanley entered into an agreement with the City of Winkler to be able to use the new Winker Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant, an initial consideration before applying for federal and provincial funding.
Grant Application Submission
Application made to The Government of Canada and Province of Manitoba’s Investing in Canada Infrastructure Fund, anticipated to provide 73% of project funding.
Grant application approval and community consultation period (We are here.)
The RM of Stanley is awaiting a response from both the federal and provincial governments regarding the grant application submission. Without the funding in place, the project will not move forward.
The initial community survey conducted in September 2019 was the first step in a consultation process that will help the Municipality understand the needs of residents as we work towards what an actual sewer proposal could look like.
A summary of survey results and how the RM is addressing feedback received was mailed to homeowners and posted online in December 2019 (CLICK HERE).
Here's what you can expect next:
- If grant funding is not approved: The project will not move forward, and we will advise the communities of such.
- If grant funding is approved: The Municipality will create a sewer proposal that reflects how we plan to address concerns raised and take additional steps including community open houses and subsequent updates to consult with homeowners.
