ProjectsBath Water Treatment Plant Upgrades
Construction for the Bath Water Treatment Plant Upgrade project is scheduled to begin in June 2020. The project will involve replacing the existing media filters with a Membrane Gravity Filter system which will incorporate full redundancy into the plant’s treatment process.
A mobile water treatment unit will provide treated drinking water for the village of Bath and the Bath and Millhaven institutions while work is conducted on the existing filters. Construction is expected to last six month, with a projected completion date of December 2020, and no service disruptions are expected during this period.
Residents who have questions regarding this project can contact Rami Maassarani, Project Coordinator for Loyalist Township, at 613-386-7351, ext. 102.

Edgewood Road Municipal Drain
After installing new watermains on Edgewood Road and Compton Court in 2019, the Township in partnership with MTO is installing new storm sewers on Edgewood Road in 2020.
The storm sewer begins on the north side of Highway 33 (Bath Road), crosses to the south side, then follows the length of Edgewood Road and crosses Township lands to discharge into Lake Ontario. Ditch inlets convey the water from the ditches beside Edgewood Road into the storm sewer, as it approaches the outlet at Lake Ontario. The storm sewer is designed with capacity to convey flows resulting from a 100-year design storm.
The project has been awarded to R.W. Tomlinson Ltd. The construction begins on July 27, 2020 and is expected to be completed by the end of October 2020.
Residents who have questions or concerns can contact Curtis Ottenhof, Project Manager for R.W. Tomlinson, at 613-453-8783; or Joe Gratton, Project Supervisor for Loyalist Township, at 613-386-7351, ext. 172.
Briscoe Park Rehabilitation
Briscoe Park is located at the end of Sir John Johnson Drive, in the Village of Bath. Public consultation was completed in 2018 and the final design includes improved accessibility, safety upgrades, new playground equipment, new trees, and drainage improvements. Upgrades to the park was one of the Recreation projects planned for construction in 2019. Funding for this project is in the approved 2019 capital budget and includes contributions fundraised by the Bath & District Lions Club. Due to timing and weather constraints, the construction phase of the project was pushed back to 2020. After a competitive procurement process, O. Bettschen Construction Ltd. was chosen as the contractor to complete this work. As of mid-July 2020, the project has largely been completed.
Bath Main Street Reconstruction
Earlier this year, Loyalist Township successfully applied to the Ministry of Transportation's Connecting Links Program, which provides dedicated provincial funding for road and bridge projects on designated connecting link highways. The approved grant for 2019 was for design work to replace the asphalt on Main Street in Bath, from Centennial Park to the western village limit, as well as rehabilitation of the Bath Creek box culvert at Centennial Park.
Loyalist Township has received funding for the construction phase of this project through the Ministry of Transportation 2020-21 Connecting Links Program. Construction is planned for the 2020 construction season.
Fairfield Park Parking Lot
Loyalist Township will be resurfacing the parking lot at Fairfield park.
