Sewer Use Reports

This month there are a couple of documents of note to be presented to the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee on April 8.

Toronto Water Outfall Monitoring Program 2007 Progress Report

This report is a summary of outfall monitoring for 2007, something that staff has been doing since 2005. In this report, outfalls have been monitored on Taylor-Massey Creek, Black Creek and other watercourses throughout Toronto. Some new violations have been discovered and some old ones have been corrected. For example, one correction resulted in a reduction from 2,000,000 cfu/100 mL to 9 cfu/100 mL! CFU stands for Coliform Forming Units.

This report is mentioned in an omnibus report on sewer use bylaw compliance.
