A barge and crane in Lake Ontario can be seen from Ashbridges Bay. The construction is for a new outfall tunnel for the Ashbridges Bay Treatment Plant. The existing outfall has been in operation since 1947 and is approaching the end of its service life.
The new outfall tunnel will increase the capacity and will operate under high flow conditions, mainly during rainstorms. It will improve water quality at the shoreline, meeting both federal and provincial regulatory requirements.
It is expected to be completed by December 2023.
