The Town is undertaking a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) to assess alternatives for the road system and the provision of water and wastewater servicing in the area of Hidden Lake Road and the Alta development lands and along Highway 26. The Study will assess needed improvements to Hidden Lake Road and evaluate options for the establishment of a future road network to provide service to the Alta Phase 2 subdivision. Options will be assessed for extending the water distribution system to Phase 2 of the Alta development and to improve the existing water distribution system to provide adequate fire protection to existing homes in the area of Hidden Lake Road and the Alta subdivision. This Study will also update the previous Class EA (2005) assessment of sanitary servicing concepts for the Alta Phase 2 subdivision, and existing homes along Highway 26 from Delphi Point to just west of Fraser Crescent.
Project Update - May 22, 2018
The project team is refining the preferred water, wastewater and road servicing solutions in preparation for an additional Public Information Centre. This includes consultation with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry and the Ministry of Transportation regarding potential sites for the proposed Hidden Lake Road sewage pumping station. Due to the upcoming summer vacation period and the municipal election cycle, the Public Information Centre is anticipated to be held early in 2019.
Project Update - March 27, 2018
Further analysis is being completed to refine the preferred water, wastewater and road servicing solutions before issuing the Class EA Report.

Details of the Public Information Centre will be distributed to the study mailing list when they become available.
