Incinerator EA Study Submitted to Province For Review

The Durham-York incinerator (thermal treatment) project team has submitted the environmental assessment (EA) study to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment (MOE) Friday July 31. The final documents will be available on the project web site www.durhamyorkwaste.ca by Friday August 7. We have attached the formal notice of submission to this alert as a PDF file. The notice sets out the commenting period and locations where documents can be viewed.

Now that the Regions have submitted the EA, all comments about the EA study must be submitted to the MOE project officer Gavin Battarino (contact information is shown on the notice). Status of the MOE review can be monitored on the MOE web site: http://www.ene.gov.on.ca/en/eaab/projects/durham_york.htm

If you haven’t already done so, we encourage you to sign on to the project team mailing list to receive their communications. Send your contact information by email to info@durhamyorkwaste.ca

How you can help:

1) Forward this email to everyone you know who may be interested, and encourage them to sign on to the ZeroWaste4ZeroBurning mailing list by writing to citizens@zerowaste4zeroburning.ca so that we can keep everyone informed.

2) Comment on the final EA study documents during the initial review period, August 7 to September 25 by email to the project officer as per the attached notice.

3) Regional and Clarington councils are on summer recess, but councillors themselves are not on vacation for the entire period. Continue to let them know that you oppose the incinerator – provide your reasons in your own words – and that you want to consider safer, more sensible and affordable waste management options. Email and contact information is on the web:
