Notice of filing of Addendum
Revisions and Addenda to the East London Sanitary Servicing Study Master Plan and the Vauxhall Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion Environmental Assessment
The City undertook a Master Plan entitled the East London Sanitary Servicing Study, completed August 2018, which made recommendations for future wastewater servicing in east London under a short term (20 year) and long term (50 year) planning window. This study recommended that the long term solution for wastewater treatment was the construction of a single new treatment plant, to be located at the existing Pottersburg WWTP site, which would provide treatment for both the Vauxhall and Pottersburg sewersheds. As part of the construction approach for the new plant, it was anticipated that the existing Pottersburg WWTP would need to first be demolished. The Vauxhall WWTP would therefore be required to provide treatment for all east end wastewater flows until the new plant is completed, requiring substantial upgrades as the short-term solution.
As a result of ongoing consultation and planning efforts, it is now anticipated that the construction of the future Pottersburg WWTP can proceed without any major disruption of the existing Pottersburg treatment processes, requiring only minor upgrades at Vauxhall to maximize the treatment capacity of the existing plant. This represents a significant reduction in capital costs from what was contemplated in the ELSS. The Addendum Report, available in hard copy on the 9th floor at City Hall and on the City’s Website, outlines the technical approach to achieving this additional capacity. No environmental impacts beyond those considered under the ELSS are anticipated under the revised strategy. Subject to any comments received, the City of London intends to officially adopt the recommendations documented in the Addendum Report.
In accordance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process, this Notice of Addendum is being placed on the public record for a 30 day review period. Please note that only the material presented in the Addendum Report, and not the original ELSS, are available for public input during the review period. If you wish to provide comments or input on the Addendum Report, you can do so by contacting:

West London Dyke Replacement – Phase 7

The West London Dyke is 2,374 m long and runs along the west bank of the North Branch of the Thames River from Oxford Street to The Forks of the Thames River and then along the west bank of the Main Branch to the west side of the Wharncliffe Road Bridge. The City of London owns the dyke and through an agreement, the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority (UTRCA) undertakes major maintenance activities.
The West London Dyke is primarily an engineered structure which protects life and property during periods of extreme river flows. In addition to servicing a critical control function, the dyke is also an integral component of the City’s recreational pathway system and its location at The Forks of the Thames makes it a prominent structure in the downtown area of the City.
In 2007, the West London Dyke was raised to protect against the 250-year flood level between Riverside Drive and Rogers Avenue (Phase 1) utilizing a near vertical modular block wall with geogrid reinforcement. In 2009, a pedestrian underpass was constructed below the Dundas Street and Queens Avenue bridges (Phase 2). In 2016, replacement of a 300 m section of dyke between Rogers Avenue and Carrothers Avenue was completed (Phase 3A). As part of the Phase 3 replacement, the dyke elevation was re-evaluated using current flood modelling plus the addition of freeboard to provide protection from climate change impacts. As such, to provide the required flood protection, the Phase 1 structure (adjacent to Labatt Park) was raised to meet the current Phase 3 design levels (up to 0.9 m higher than the existing Phase 1 structure). This work was completed with the assistance of federal funding in 2017 (Phase 3B). In 2018, replacement of the Phase 4 structure between Carrothers Avenue and Blackfriars Bridge was undertaken, and in 2019, replacement of the Phase 5/6 structure between Blackfriars Bridge and St. Patrick Street was done (with restoration work to occur this Spring).
Stantec has undertaken the detailed design for the next phase of dyke reconstruction from St. Patrick Street to just north of the Oxford Street bridge (Phase 7), which will consist of a near vertical modular block wall with geogrid reinforcement (similar to the previous replacement phases). Construction will also include a new railing, pedestrian pathway, underpass under Oxford Street, Argyle Street road and utility reconstruction/relocation, lighting and landscape features. It is anticipated that construction of the  Phase 7 works may commence in July.
This event is an opportunity for interested persons to learn more about this project and to provide input and comments to the City and UTRCA. The Public Information Centre details are as follows:
