As part of this Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study, natural environment specialists have conducted field studies to determine the presence of sensitive natural heritage features, environmentally significant areas, and surveys for Species at Risk and their habitats. These findings have been summarized in video 2 on the PIC#1 webpage, which identified Existing Conditions of the corridor.
As the study progresses and the Preliminary Preferred Design is selected, an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report will be prepared. The report will evaluate the potential environmental impacts and identify recommended mitigation measures as required.
Halton Region will also continue to work directly with Credit Valley Conservation Authority, the Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry and other key stakeholders.
