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.

This two-part Lake Ontario Evening series highlights some of these large projects, from east to west, and showcases the incredible feats of engineering and design being implemented to help move Toronto closer to delisting as an Area of Concern.

In Part Two of our series, we will discuss projects in the western side of the Toronto and Region Area of Concern.

Presentations will highlight the Don Mouth Naturalization and Port Lands Flood Protection Project, Jim Tovey Lakeview Conservation Area, and various major maintenance projects.
