Adelaide Wastewater Treatment Plant Climate Change Resiliency environmental assessment

Project Start/End Dates
Thu, Apr 1 - Fri, Apr 2 2021


The City of London is undertaking a Class Environmental Assessment to address climate change resiliency improvements for the Adelaide Wastewater Treatment Plant.  The City of London secured 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 identify the preferred flood protection measures for the Adelaide Wastewater Treatment Plant to improve asset resilience, enhance treatment capabilities and enhance the safety of plant staff during extreme wet weather events.  Potential improvement works include a flood barrier, an effluent pumping station and other upgrades to protect these critical infrastructure assets and reduce environmental impacts of flooding events.

Current Status

This project was recently initiated.  Further updates will be communicated through this page.  Please feel free to register as a stakeholder for the project by contacting the City’s project manager, Marcy McKillop, at
