In November 2010, the Town of East Gwillimbury (EG) initiated a “Master Plan” Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) to develop plans and strategies to govern the Stormwater Management (SWM) and practices within the Town limits. The intent of the Stormwater Management Master Plan (SWMMP) is to prepare a practical and implementable framework which balances the requirements of proposed and existing development with infrastructure requirements, economic, social, and environmental constraints, and opportunities. The Lake Simcoe Protection Plan was introduced by the Province of Ontario in June of 2009, and it called for all settlement areas to prepare and implement comprehensive SWMMP that would improve the management of stormwater for both existing and planned development.
