Proposed Changes to the Facility
Terrapure is seeking approval to increase the capacity for solid, nonhazardous industrial residual material at the SCRF by 3,680,000 m3. Currently, the SCRF is permitted to received both industrial fill and residual material. Terrapure only accepts material that cannot otherwise be reasonably diverted.

The options were assessed and evaluated using a three step methodology:
Selecting the Recommended Option
- For each of the six options presented, an assessment and evaluation was completed from the perspective of nine environmental components.
- The assessment considered effects during construction, operation, and closure of the Stoney Creek Regional Facility
- Climate change was considered in the assessment of the options including identifying historical climate/meterological trends and the potential for extreme weather events. For example, power outages, physical damage, stormwater management and reduced access to the site.
- The next page outlines how each of the options were compared to one another to determine their advantages and disadvantages.
