WWFMP - Current Class Environmental Assessments
The City’s Wet Weather Flow Master Plan (WWFMP) is a long range plan for the management of wet weather flows across the City’s six watersheds and waterfront. As with all Master Plans, it provides for the integration of infrastructure needs with environmental assessment planning principles. The Master Plan was prepared by following the Municipal Class EA (PDF) – a planning and design process used by municipalities to meet the requirements of the provincial Environmental Assessment Act.
While the Master Plan addressed the need and justification of projects at a broad level by completing Phases 1 and 2 of the process, more detailed studies for each of the individual projects included in the Master Plan must now be completed. Each of the studies follows will follow the planning and design process described in the Municipal Class EA (PDF) which includes an evaluation of alternatives, consultation with the public and agencies, an assessment of the impacts of the recommended solution and identification of measures to mitigate any environmental impacts.
