Owen Sound Phase 4 Reinforcement Project Notice of Project Start & Public Information Sessions

Posted On: Wednesday, July 5, 2017
Project Overview To serve a growing demand for natural gas, Union Gas plans to build up to 36 kilometres of 12-inch diameter natural gas pipeline in the Municipality of West Grey and the Township of Chatsworth, in the County of Grey (see map attached for preliminary preferred pipeline route). Construction would begin in 2019.

Preparation of an Environmental Report

AECOM Canada Ltd. has been retained by Union Gas to prepare an Environmental Report (ER) to assess the potential environmental and socio-economic effects that may result from the project and outline plans for avoiding and/or mitigating any effects, where possible. The ER will accompany a Leave-to-Construct application that will be submitted to the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) in the fall of 2017. OEB review and approval is needed to undertake construction.

You are Invited to Participate

Two Public Information Sessions are planned to provide interested parties an opportunity to learn about the planning process, review studies and investigations that have been completed to date, and discuss the project with representatives from Union Gas and AECOM. The feedback obtained will be integrated into the ER and planning process of the project.
