Erosion of Gibraltar Point to be studied

The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) has published a notice of intent to commence an addendum study to an Environmental Assessment (EA) that was completed and approved in 2008 to provide long-term erosion protection of the Toronto Island, along the southwest shoreline, approximately located between Hanlan’s Beach and Gibraltar Point, in the City of Toronto.  Erosion control measures were not implemented within five years of the approval, and as such, an addendum under Section 6.0 of the Class Environmental Assessment for Remedial Flood and Erosion Control Projects (Class EA) process is required.

TRCA invites you to participate in this study, which is subject to approval through the Class EA addendum process approved for this type of undertaking. Your input will be incorporated in the planning and design process for this project.
