According to the City of Mississauga's Strategic Plan, one of the City's strategic goals is to
build and maintain its infrastructure for its citizens and for generations to come. A sound,
functional and attractive infrastructure is integral in completing its neighbourhoods, as we
build a City for the 21st century.
Wastewater facilities, which are designed to remove and collect sediments and other
contaminants from local urban stormwater runoff, are very near capacity for sediment
collection. Major maintenance is essential to restore stormwater quality treatment function and
performance of the facility; to protect the downstream natural water resources and aquatic
contaminants associated with urban runoff; and to extend the useful life of the facility.
Dredging and rehabilitating the existing stormwater management pond facilities will remove and
dispose of accumulated sediments and will re-instate aquatic and upland vegetative plantings
within the pond block.
Stormwater quality treatment function will be restored and downstream natural water
resources and the aquatic environment will be protected from the release of harmful sediments
and other contaminants associated with urban runoff.
The useful life of these facilities will be extended and the City's capital investment will
be protected. Environmental benefits include the protection of downstream aquatic life,
habitat, and surface water resources.
