The face of Toronto’s waterfront is transforming and providing huge benefits to visitors, residents, and the natural environment.
Many large-scale projects are currently underway to upgrade infrastructure, control erosion, and reduce elevated nutrient levels. Not only do these undertakings increase the functionality of the waterfront – they also provide habitat for aquatic and terrestrial species, create recreational opportunities, and impart a more aesthetic and enjoyable user experience.
Join us for a two-part Lake Ontario Evening series as we highlight some of these large projects from East to West and showcase the incredible feats of engineering and design being implemented to help move Toronto closer to delisting as an Area of Concern.
This is Part One of the series. At this Lake Ontario Evening, we will discuss projects in the eastern side of the Toronto and Region Area of Concern, including the Ashbridges Bay Landform Project and the Ashbridges Bay Treatment Plant Outfall Project.
The western projects will be discussed in Part Two on Thursday March 23, 2023.
