The permit helps ensure that construction work is completed according to the Erosion and Sediment Control By-law. The by-law helps to prevent sediments resulting from land disturbance from impacting the City’s storm drainage network.
If you need to remove trees as part of your construction work, you may need to apply for a tree removal permit.
Site dewatering techniques control sedimentation of water accumulated on your construction site. If water needs to be removed from your site before it absorbs into the ground, it should be pumped into a holding tank. The water should be deposited into a City or Region approved sanitary manhole.
