State of Emergency
Mayor Josh Morgan has declared a State of Emergency due to increasing flooding impacts. With several roads closed and areas experiencing flooding, the City is advising residents to stay home.
The Dingman Creek subwatershed (17,200 hectares) is located in Middlesex County with 74% of the area within the City of London. The Dingman Creek Environmental Assessment is the most important stormwater study that will be completed by the City for the next 15 years. The recommendations of the Dingman Creek Environmental Assessment are intended to mitigate the impact of future development on water resources and to remediate the subwatershed, with consideration for current and potential flooding, erosion concerns, as well as wildlife/aquatic habitat and natural corridor enhancement.
The 30 day Public and Agency Review period for the Stage 1 EA completed on Monday, March 30, 2020. The City is currently responding to comments received during the review period and finalizing the EA report.
The focus of the study will be providing stormwater management solutions to facilitate development in South London for lands within the Urban Growth Boundary for the next 20 years.
The concept of a “complete corridor” will be evaluated as part of the EA process to promote the movement of stormwater, wildlife, and people. The recommended strategy is intended to be a showcase project for South London as well as a fiscally responsible approach to stormwater management in the subwatershed.

With the exception of personal information, all comments will become part of the public record of the study.
The study is being conducted according to the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, which is a planning process approved under Ontario’s Environmental Assessment Act.
