Upgrading the capacity of the Overbook to Riverview transmission corridor is subject to the provincial Environmental Assessment Act. This project is being planned in accordance with the approved Class Environmental Assessment for Minor Transmission Facilities.


The Class EA was developed as a streamlined process to ensure that minor transmission projects that have a predictable range of effects are planned and carried out in an environmentally acceptable manner.

Consultation with elected officials, municipal representatives, government agencies, First Nations and Métis communities, interest groups, and the public is an important part of the Class EA process. In addition to organized consultation opportunities, we welcome input at any time throughout the project.

As part of the consultation process, a draft Environmental Study Report (ESR) was made available for a 30-day review period. Details of the review process were communicated through various channels, including local newspapers, this project website, and via notifications to project stakeholders.

During the review period if concerns were expressed, Hydro One attempted to resolve them to complete the EA process. If interested parties were not satisfied with the response, they could submit a written request (Part II Order) to the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change asking for a higher level of assessment (an Individual Environmental Assessment). The Minister of the Environment and Climate Change would decide whether an Individual EA is required.
