Minimize Environmental Impacts
An Environmental Assessment (EA) determines what environmental impacts, if any, there will be during a project and how to minimize the impacts.
Ontario municipalities must complete an EA when undertaking municipal road, water and wastewater projects. By eliminating or reducing effects on the environment, the City can avoid expensive, and sometimes controversial, remedial action once the project has been completed.
Over the long term, environmental assessment provides decision makers with the kind of information they need to approve projects that are suitable with a healthy, sustainable environment for both present & future generations.
