Municipalities Plead for Stormwater Infrastructure Funding
Published on: 07/07/2017
In order to assess Ontario's ability to cope with the impending impacts of climate change and severe weather patterns, The Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE), Residential and Civil Construction Alliance of Ontario (RCCAO), and Ontario Sewer and Watermain Construction Association (OSWCA) have partnered to conduct a study of the condition of stormwater infrastructure and the type of asset management planning that is done in municipalities across Ontario.
A survey was sent to one representative in a pertinent department at all 444 Ontario municipalities in February 2017. A total of 55 surveys were completed. Recipients were asked to complete the survey anonymously so that aggregated data from local experiences could be collected to generate evidence and recommendations for policy and decision makers.
