Municipal Class Environmental Assessment for Avalon Street Sanitary Sewer - Notice of Completion

The City of London (City) has completed a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to identify and provide a preferred alignment for the sanitary sewers on Avalon Street.

The City has completed this study as a Schedule ‘B’ project in accordance with the Municipal Class EA (2000, as amended) under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. Notice of the Study Commencement and the Public Information Centre were distributed to the public, interested parties and regulatory agencies.

A Public Information Centre was held on Thursday January 25, 2018 to solicit input on the project.
