Durham Incinerator - EA first round public comment deadline Friday Sept 25th, 2009
Durham Incinerator - EA first round public comment deadline Friday Sept
On June 24th, Durham Region councillors voted 16-12 to submit the
Environmental Assessment study to the Ontario ministry of the environment
for approval of the proposed waste incinerator planned for Courtice.
The deadline for the first round of comments is this Friday, September
25th. We urge all concerned citizens to take action and send comments to
the ministry reviewers to alert them to concerns with the EA study and
process to date. The provincial government reviewers and the Durham-York
project team will review your comments.
Long-standing areas of concern with the Incinerator EA studies have
focused on air quality and the human health impacts of incineration, the
lack of sufficient and meaningful public consultation throughout the EA
study and the high costs of incineration.
This is not a done deal!
We urge you to submit your written comments to the MOE by Friday at the
address shown below, so that these could be considered by the government
reviewers before the final round of public comments. We will advise you
when those dates become known.
All EA documents can be found at
