Basement Flooding Improvements Study

Notice of Study Commencement

The City of Toronto has initiated several Class Environmental Assessment (EA) studies to identify causes of flooding and develop solutions to reduce the risk of future surface and basement flooding before it is discharged to watercourses.

Study Areas 42, 44 & 62, located within the St. Clair Avenue, Jane/ Keele Street, DVP area, has experienced basement and surface flooding during extreme storms in the past.

In response, the City of Toronto has initiated these EA studies to address flooding that originates within the City’s property such as roads and sewer infrastructure (public property).

The Process

These studies are being planned as a Master Plan in accordance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process and will result in a series of recommended basement flooding remediation projects. The Master Plans will define the problem, consider and evaluate alternative solutions, assess
impacts of the preferred solutions and identify measures to lessen any adverse impacts.

Public Consultation

Opportunities for public input are planned throughout the study, including an online survey, stakeholder meetings and public consultation events.  Information about each study’s progress will be made available on the webpage and shared with persons who sign-up for updates.
