The City of London has retained IBI Group and WSP Global to undertake a Class Environmental Assessment to examine alternatives for the realignment of stormwater and sanitary sewers that will be impacted by the proposed Richmond Street Rapid Transit tunnel in Downtown London. The four sewers are the Carling Creek Trunk Storm Sewer, Oxford Street Trunk Sanitary Sewer, Pall Mall Trunk Sanitary Sewer, and the Sanitary Relief Sewer in the vicinity of Pall Mall and Mill streets. This may require a new outfall to the Thames River.
The project is planned as a Schedule ‘B’ project as outlined in the Municipal Engineer’s Association (MEA) Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015). This is an approved process under the Environmental Assessment Act.
