INTRODUCTION OUR SERVICES OUR WORKFORCE OUR ENVIRONMENTal INITIATIVES OUR COMMUNITY OUTREACH OUR ECONOMIC PERFORMANCE OUR GOVERNANCE, COMPLIANCE AND BUSINESS CONDUCT Environmental Spills At Toronto Hydro, we strive to reduce our environmental spills through the replacement of aging assets, completion of scheduled maintenance and inspections, and employee training and awareness. When a spill occurs, we are committed to responding in a safe and environmentally responsible manner. Reportable spills for electric utilities typically involve transformer oil and hydraulic liquid spills of more than 100 litres as a result of aging assets, overheated transformers, or motor vehicle accidents involving distribution equipment. Our field staff is required to complete spill response training on a yearly basis to ensure conformance with Toronto Hydro’s procedures. I n 2012, there were two reportable spills made to the Ministry of the Environment and the City of Toronto, as required by provincial regulations and municipal by-laws.
