Notice of Project Review - Adam Street Bridge/UCO Dam

Updated

The Adam Street Bridge / UCO Dam (structure) was the subject of a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) process,
completed by the Municipality in 2002. The structure is located in the Village of Mildmay, to the west of the Recreation Complex,
where shown on the Study Area Map below. The EA process intended to address the poor condition of the aging structure
and the impacts of the dam on fish habitat.

Based on the additional reviews, the findings of the previously completed EA are still valid and the updated Recommended Preferred Solution for the Adam Street Bridge/UCO Dam remains the same: to replace the existing structure with a culvert and restore the road. Consistent with the initial findings, it is expected that the removal of the existing dam may restore the area to a more natural cold watercourse environment and improve fish passage and habitat conditions.
