Duffin Creek Water Pollution Control Plant

Aerial of Duffin Creek Water Pollution Control Plant

York Region and Durham Region are conducting a joint study to identify the preferred method of addressing the future capacity limitations of the existing outfall at Duffin Creek Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP). This work is being undertaken through a Schedule C Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA).

The Municipal Class EA study will define the issues to be addressed including:

  • Defining the need for upgrading the capacity of the existing outfall
  • Identifying feasible alternatives
  • Evaluating the (technical, natural, social/cultural, and economic) impacts of the alternatives
  • Recommending a preferred solution(s) with appropriate mitigation measures as required

The Class EA process being followed will offer members of the public and agencies opportunities to provide input. This website will be regularly updated to provide the latest available information on the Class EA Study to all concerned.
