NOTICES

Notice of Study Commencement Adelaide Wastewater Treatment Plant Climate Change Resiliency Class Environmental Assessment

The City of London (City) is undertaking a Schedule B Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to identify the preferred solution for flood protection and climate change resiliency at the Adelaide Wastewater Treatment Plant.    

Background: In April 2019, the City declared a climate emergency to deepen its commitment to protecting its economy, ecosystems, and communities from climate change through adaptation and mitigation initiatives.

The City secured federal funding through the Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund for this project, as well as for climate change resiliency improvements at the Greenway Wastewater Treatment Plant.

This project will seek to identify a preferred flood protection approach to improve asset resilience, enhance treatment capabilities, and improve plant safety. Potential approaches include a flood barrier, an effluent pumping station, and other upgrades to protect these critical infrastructure assets and reduce the environmental impacts of flooding.
