This week's report discusses the recommended option for the Springbank Dam. The recommended option, to allow for a free-flowing river by decommissioning the Springbank Dam, will be presented in a Public Participation Meeting to the Civic Works Committee on Tuesday, January 9.
Following a comprehensive review of each option and consultation with public, stakeholders, and Indigenous, First Nations, and Métis communities, the recommended option for the Springbank dam is now available and outlined in the One River Stage 1 Environmental Assessment Report.
Please review the report, and submit any written comments that should be added to the Civic Works Committee Agenda no later than 9:00 a.m. on January 8, 2018. The written submissions, including names and contact information and the report of the public participation meeting, will be made available to the public, including posting on the City of London’s website

The objective of Stage 1 is the selection of a preferred option for the future of the Springbank Dam which will be an influential factor in the identification and evaluation of the overall river management plan going forward. The option selected will inform the decision-making process on the overall river management plan. A preferred option for the Springbank Dam has been selected based on natural, social/cultural, and technical/economic criteria.
The report will be submitted to committee with a Public Participation Meeting to be held at the Civic Works Committee on Jan 9, 2018. For details on how to participate and/or written submissions and due dates, click here.
After consultation with a wide group of stakeholders, including First Nations and Métis communities, Agency Advisory representatives and the public, the recommended option is the Free-Flowing River, decommissioning the dam so that it no longer provides a water retention function. Options may include repurposing the dam structure, various river enhancements, ecological enhancements and recreational enhancements upstream, working within the hydrologic and hydraulic limitations associated with lower water levels during the summer months. Work to be
completed in addition to salvaging dam components and obtaining applicable permits could include removing gates to provide a live bottom to the river and stabilizing the required components and shore structures.
