The Capacity of and Constraints on Water and Wastewater Systems in the Greater Golden Horseshoe: Report on Phase I
This report contains the results of a feasibility study focusing on growth management in Ontario’s Greater Golden Horseshoe (GGH) that was designed to answer two questions: (1) What data are available to assess the capacity of and constraints on existing and planned water and wastewater systems relative to the availability of fresh water and the assimilative capacity of the region’s inland water systems? and (2) Using the available data, what types of data products and tools can be developed to better inform the allocation of growth across the Greater Golden Horseshoe?
This paper describes a method for mapping and measuring the lands designated for growth and urban expansion in the area known as the Greater Golden Horseshoe under the provisions of the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe.
