Hydro One is initiating a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to expand its existing Wawa Transformer Station (TS), located northeast of Anjigami Lake on Anjigami Lake Road, southeast of the Municipality of Wawa. This proposed station expansion is required in order to connect the proposed new East-West Tie transmission line to the station.
As part of this project, the following work is being proposed:
Installation of new electrical equipment such as circuit breakers and disconnect switches;
Reconfiguration of existing electrical components to establish connection with the proposed new line; and
Installation of a new relay building, which would house electronic devices critical for safety, reliability and security of the power system.
To accommodate this work, the existing Wawa TS would have to be expanded by approximately half a hectare to the north.

Notice of Change to Class Environmental Assessment, which was published on March 13, 2019 in the Algoma News Review newspaper (aussi disponible
