Highland Creek Wastewater Treatment Plan Update
|| First stakeholder meeting for the Health Impact Assessment held in November 2014
A Health Impact Assessment (HIA) is being conducted as part of the Environmental Assessment (EA) for Biosolids Management Alternatives for the Highland Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. CCRA was invited to attend the first stakeholder meeting for the HIA on Nov. 12th, 2014. The purpose of the meeting was to identify health issues of importance to stakeholders and prioritize the health impacts that will be explored as part of the class environmental assessment. The stakeholders at the meeting participated in a scoping exercise to identify potential health effects to be included in the assessment of biosolids management alternatives. The methods, results and recommendations of the HIA will be summarized in a stand-alone report and will be considered in the EA to identify the preferred alternative for the Highland Creek Treatment Plant.
For more information about the EA, please visit the project website www.toronto.ca/hctpbiosolidsea. You can also contact Josie Franch to be placed on the mailing list at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CCRA will continue to participate in EA public meetings and is a participant on the Highland Creek Treatment Plant Neighbourhood Liaison Committee, made up of local residents from the area that advise the City about residents’ concerns. If you would like to be added to the Liaison Committee email list, please send your request to email@example.com.
