In progress Environmental assessment

Dixie-Dundas Flood Mitigation Study

The City of Mississauga is undertaking a Schedule C Class Environmental Assessment Study to mitigate flooding risks from Little Etobicoke Creek and enable future growth in the Dixie-Dundas community.

Project overview

The Dixie-Dundas community consists of a variety of residential, commercial, industrial and park and trail land uses and includes designated Special Policy Areas (SPAs) which regulate future development due to flood risks. This area is subject to flooding as a result of spilling from Little Etobicoke Creek near the Dixie Road bridge during high flow conditions including the storm event that occurred on July 8th, 2013.

The goal of this study is to find solutions to provide flood protection to residences and businesses as well as to enable future growth in the Dixie-Dundas community as envisioned in the Dundas Connects Master Plan.

Public Information Centres

Two Public Information Centres (PICs) will be held to present information related to the study and allow an opportunity for residents and stakeholders to provide input. Details regarding the PICs will be advertised publicly and communicated directly as the study progresses.

Public Information Centre #1

PIC #1 was held in 2020, and the purpose of it was to:

  • introduce the project
  • describe the environmental context
  • present alternative solutions to address the problems
  • outline the evaluation criteria
  • provide opportunity for interested parties to offer input

Please find the presentation below.

Expanded study area

The study has been expanded downstream to Dundas Street East to adequately identify and assess any improvements to address flooding from Little Etobicoke Creek. Read the Notice of Expanded Study Area.

Bulletin for Expanded Study Area

Conceptual alternative flood mitigation solutions were identified in the expanded study area near Dundas Street East. For more information, refer to the Project Bulletin for Expanded Study Area.

Public Information Centre #2

The purpose of PIC #2 is to:
  • present the evaluation and preferred alternative solutions
  • present and evaluate alternative design concepts
