For the past year the Richmond Hill Natural Environment and Engineering staff have been working to address the serious erosion issues in this valley. Storm events and high-flowing water have caused damage in the Elgin Mills Greenway. As a result, we’re reconstructing the area to include modern stormwater infrastructure that will help prevent flooding, control erosion and improve water quality. We’re also building new trails, lookout structures and a boardwalk for the community to enjoy!
Work is expected to begin in the coming months and is expected to be complete in spring 2019.
