Maple Lane Sewage Pumping Station (SPS)


The Maple Lane Sewage Pumping Station (SPS), located at 4 Maple Lane in Alliston, is used to convey wastewater collected from the northwest side of the community of Alliston to the Alliston Wastewater Treatment Plant. The SPS functions as an important asset to the Town of New Tecumseth’s wastewater infrastructure and is required to service the residents of this community.

 The existing pump station was originally constructed in 1971 and was last upgraded in 1997. In 2019, the Town conducted a comprehensive condition assessment of the Maple Lane SPS and identified areas requiring upgrades to ensure its long-term viability and operability. These include the following at a minimum:

  • Installation of a new standby generator.
  • Repair or replacement of its power distribution and heating and ventilation equipment.
  • Improvements to the SPS’s process and pumping equipment.

Pursuant to these recommendations, the Town has retained EXP Services Limited to complete detailed engineering design for the rehabilitation of the Maple Lane SPS. The scope of work for this project includes a study to determine the optimal rehabilitation solution(s), preparation of the detailed design and tender administration services.  

Class EA Requirements and Exemption

This project is being conducted according to the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) document, Municipal Engineers Association, as amended in March 2023, which is approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. Based on preliminary reviews of the project scope and Class EA requirements, this project is exempt provided the screening criteria in the EA document have been met. This work is currently underway. 

Planned Activities 2023-2024

The project was initiated in the spring of 2023 and the design phase is anticipated to be complete by spring 2024. As a part of this work, EXP will complete a field survey of the sewage station property and the surrounding roadways, a geotechnical survey, a subsurface utility exploration, and environmental surveys. EXP will complete the detailed design followed by tender assistance.

Construction is planned for the summer of 2024, pending utility conflicts, agency approvals and Town budget availability.
