Human Health Mitigation Plan
Ministry of the Environment approves mitigation plan
Thank you to everyone who commented on the draft Human Health Mitigation Plan during the public consultation period from June 2 to July 4, 2011.
The comments received along with the draft mitigation plan were submitted to the Ministry of the Environment for review. The Ministry approved the plan on September 21, 2011, and has asked Metrolinx to implement it for the Georgetown South Project.
The revised human health mitigation plan was drafted to address residual health risks, if any, after moving to Tier 4-compliant locomotives. The conclusion was that Tier 4 engine technology will effectively mitigate any additional emissions resulting from future increased GO train service in the Georgetown South rail corridor.
