Draft Environmental Assessment Study Report – W12A Landfill The City of London is seeking community input on the draft Environmental Assessment Study Report (EASR) for the proposed expansion of the W12A Landfill. The EASR details all work completed during the environmental assessment.  The draft EASR will be available for public review until May 21, 2021 on the project website (getinvolved.london.ca/WhyWasteDisposal).  Hardcopies (for loan) and/or memory sticks of the draft EASR are available and can be obtained by contacting Tracey Lee by phone at (519) 661-CITY (2489) ext. 8413 or by e-mail at tlee@london.ca.

The City is proposing to approximately double the current capacity of the landfill by increasing the height of the existing waste footprint which will extend its life to 2049.  In addition, the service area will be increased to a regional area, which includes: City of London, County of Huron, County of Perth, County of Elgin, County of Lambton, and County of Middlesex.  The proposed design capacity for landfill expansion over the 25 year planning period is 9.9 million tonnes including 0.5 million tonnes from neighbouring municipalities (about 5%).   

Following the review period, the draft EASR will be updated to address comments received and then submitted to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) for approval.  The MECP approval process will also include opportunities to provide comments.

Notice of Study Commencement and Public Information Centre No. 1 – Wastewater Treatment Operations Master Plan The City of London operates five wastewater treatment plants and 36 pumping stations to collect and treat London’s wastewater. This study will look at the need for new and upgraded facilities as part of our commitment to protecting the environment and ensuring that our facilities can continue to serve London as it grows. This Master Plan needs to consider the entire city. We are seeking input from everyone who wants their voice heard. Background: The proper collection and treatment of wastewater has a direct impact of the health of residents, our environment, and the ability of the City to grow and prosper. Operating a wastewater treatment system often requires the upgrade of existing facilities and the construction of new infrastructure. By developing an informed long-term plan, the City will ensure that the improvements we make today will effectively contribute to our long-term goals. Public Information Centre – event details: A virtual Public Information Centre will be held on Thursday, April 22 at 5:00 p.m. to present some of the key opportunities, challenges, and constraints of this Wastewater Treatment Operations Master Plan. The link to register for the online event will be available at the project’s Get Involved page (getinvolved.london.ca/wastewater-master-plan) along with a recorded presentation video following the event. Wastewater Treatment Operations Master Plan project page: For the most up-to-date information, including project updates, please visit the Wastewater Treatment Operations Master Plan project page (www.london.ca/projects/wastewater-treatment-operations-master-plan).  Your input is important: The City wants to hear from you.

If you would like to ask a question, make a comment or add your name to the contact list, please visit the project’s Get Involved page (getinvolved.london.ca/wastewater-master-plan) or contact the City Project Manager: Marcy McKillop, P.Eng.
