City Council Decision

City Council on May 3, 4 and 5, 2016, adopted the following:

 

1. City Council receive the "Executive Summary of the Highland Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant Biosolids Schedule B Class Environmental Assessment Study" appended as Attachment 1 to the report (February 9, 2016) from the General Manager, Toronto Water.

 

2. City Council endorse the recommendations of the Environmental Assessment Study appended to the report (February 9, 2016) from the General Manager, Toronto Water and request the General Manager, Toronto Water to finalize the Environmental Study Report for the Highland Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant Biosolids Class Environmental Assessment and submit it to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change for the obligatory 30 day public review period in accordance with the requirements of the Environmental Assessment Act.

 

3. Subject to the completion of the Class EA process for the Highland Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant Biosolids Class Study, City Council authorize the General Manager, Toronto Water to proceed to undertake the detailed design and construction of the preferred option.

 

4.  City Council direct the General Manager, Toronto Water to include enhanced emissions scrubbing technologies on the proposed Fluidized Bed Incinerators at the Highland Creek Treatment Plant in order to meet US EPA requirements with respect to air emissions.

 

5.  City Council request the General Manager, Toronto Water to report back to the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee, in consultation with the Director, Toronto Environment and Energy Division, on the feasibility of creating a solar and/or district energy plant on the treatment plant property with the goal of offsetting/eliminating the greenhouse gases emitted by the treatment plant and to help the City meet its City-wide greenhouse gas reduction targets.

 

6.  City Council direct the General Manager, Toronto Water to report on the viability of implementing Thermal Hydrolysis as part of Highland Creek Treatment Plant's Biosolids treatment process, once the conceptual design of the recommended Biosolids management alternative is complete.

Committee Recommendations

The Public Works and Infrastructure Committee recommends that:

 

1.  City Council receive the "Executive Summary of the Highland Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant Biosolids Schedule B Class Environmental Assessment Study" appended to the report (February 9, 2016) from the General Manager, Toronto Water as Attachment 1.

 

2.  City Council endorse the recommendations of the Environmental Assessment Study appended to the report (February 9, 2016) and request the General Manager, Toronto Water to finalize the Environmental Study Report for the Highland Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant Biosolids Class EA and submit it to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change for the obligatory 30 day public review period in accordance with the requirements of the Environmental Assessment Act.

 

3.  Subject to the completion of the Class EA process for the Highland Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant Biosolids Class Study, City Council authorize the General Manager, Toronto Water to proceed to undertake the detailed design and construction of the preferred option.

Origin

(February 9, 2016) Report from the General Manager, Toronto Water

Summary

This report seeks Council approval of the recommendations contained in the Highland Creek Treatment Plant (HCTP) Schedule B Class Environmental Assessment (EA) on the future long-term biosolids management strategy for the facility.  

 

The study is a detailed assessment of health, environmental, community and cost impacts of three short listed biosolids management options and recommends the replacement of the existing 40-year old incinerators at the HCTP with current state of the art incinerators and emissions scrubbing technology.  The study concludes that:

 

- all three alternatives have very small overall health impacts and there are no appreciable health impact differences between each of the alternatives;

 

- all three alternatives achieve notable reductions in health risks related to inhalation and multi-media exposure (due to air emissions) compared to the existing situation;

 

- all three alternatives achieve significant reductions in air emissions (based on air quality modelling of 43 chemicals of concern) with modern state of the art incineration being the lowest emitter of Green House Gas (GHG);

 

- new state of the art incinerators has the lowest noise, odour and traffic impact on the community and has the greatest public support within the community (Wards 43 & 44) surrounding the facility; and

 

- new state of the art incinerators has the lowest capital and operating costs – and therefore lowest life-cycle cost of the three options. 

 

The Request for Proposals (RFP) for this study was developed with the input of Toronto Public Health (TPH) and the Toronto Energy and Environment Division (EED).   TPH wrote the terms of reference and led the development of the Health Impact Assessments for the alternatives under study.  The EED wrote the requirements for Cumulative Impact Assessment regarding air emissions incorporating the City's in-house developed air model.
