Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

As part of the Master Drainage Plan Update Study, Master Servicing Plan and Pollution Prevention Control Plan, local flooding concerns and bottlenecks in the Valley Way area were identified as high priority.

The study will evaluate sewer servicing in the area and develop a preferred solution to address risks to downstream infrastructure and be mindful of system resiliency for basement and surface flooding.

Objective

The objective of the study is to recommend solutions to improve the system capacity and reduce local flooding concerns.

The Study

The study will follow the Municipal Engineers Association (MEA) Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Oct 2000, as Amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015) and will:

  • define existing problem and opportunities;
  • consider and evaluate solutions; and
  • identify sewer servicing recommendations.

Two Public Information Centres were held as part of the study. The first Public Information Centre meeting was held on April 10, 2019. That meeting focused on the work completed to date and potential servicing alternatives.

Virtual Public Information Centre 2: August 7 until August 21, 2020.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City is hosted the second PIC online. This virtual PIC presented the preferred alternative for the Drainage Study. In addition to the presentation boards, a walk-through video of the PIC boards and a transcript of the video content was made available.

A two-week question submission period was open from August 7 until August 21, 2020.

The City has identified a few Frequently Asked Questions from the feedback provided at the first Public Information Centre. Responses to these questions will be posted in the side bar. Additional responses to feedback received during this engagement period will be added and posted as a separate document soon.
