The former municipality of Metropolitan Toronto submitted the Main Treatment Plant Environmental Assessment (MTP EA) to the Minister of the Environment for approval under the Environmental Assessment Act in December 1997.
The purpose of the Environmental Assessment (EA) was to establish a plan to meet future wastewater needs in the service area to the year 2011 and to improve the effectiveness of the MTP at reducing environmental impacts.
There were nine individuals or groups who requested that the Minister impose a hearing and/or mediation to address their concerns related to the EA.
Through twenty four mediation sessions, the Ashbridges Bay Treatment Plant Environmental Assessment’s Mediation Agreement was developed. The City, public and non-governmental organizations reached agreements in April 1999 and signed the Mediation Agreement.
In the Mediation Agreement, provision was made for the creation of the Implementation and Compliance Monitoring Committee, more commonly known as the ICMC. The Terms of Reference for the ICMC are contained in Resolution #10 of the Mediation Agreement.
The overall purpose of the ICMC is to provide public input to the City relating to the implementation of the EA Approval. Since 2012, the ICMC has been meeting to provide information, discuss and receive comments relating to projects resulting from the approved EA Undertakings. These EA Approved Undertaking projects include a new effluent pumping station, an ultraviolet disinfection system and outfall pipe at Ashbridges Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant.
