Springbank Dam Decommissioning – Update

Since early in 2016, the Ontario Rivers Alliance, Thames River Anglers Association and several other partners have advocated for the removal of the Springbank Dam on the Thames River.  We are happy to report that the City of London is moving forward with its decommissioning. A Consulting Engineer will be chosen to complete the detailed design for its decommissioning as per the recommendations outlined in the completed One River Environmental Assessment, with an aim for construction in 2021.  We are looking forward to the project moving forward in 2021! We will keep you informed as the project progresses.
