NOTICE OF STUDY COMPLETION
The City of London has completed a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) to evaluate options to protect the Vauxhall Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) from extreme Thames River flood events. This is part of a long-term servicing strategy to provide continued operational reliability at the WWTP.
This project was carried out in accordance with the requirements of the Environmental Assessment Act and was identified as a Schedule ‘B’ project per the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Guide (as amended in 2015). The project scope involved an evaluation of alternatives, a selection of a preferred solution, and evaluation of environmental impacts and associated mitigation measures.
The preferred solution for this project provides for surface and sub-surface flood protection by constructing a berm and/or wall system around the perimeter of the WWTP, and constructing an on-site effluent pumping station to ensure secondary treatment can continue during extreme flood events.
A Class EA Project File and Technical Memorandum (final report) will be available starting July 10th, 2017 until August 9th, 2017, for review by members of the public and/or any other interested party at City Hall, 9rd Floor, 300 Dufferin Avenue from Monday to Friday: 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. The report viewing is not available on Saturdays and Sundays.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the information provided in the Project File (final report), please provide written comments to Kirby Oudekerk or Brad Weber (see contact information) no later than August 9th, 2017.
