Stormwater Servicing Master Plan for Regional roads
Stormwater Servicing Master Plan Public Information Centre 1 scheduled for Wed. March 25 has been postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date.
Given that residents may be making decisions about attending public meetings at this time and in the interest of allowing everyone equal access to the PIC process, the decision was made to postpone the session.
The Region of Peel has begun a strategic and integrated infrastructure planning initiative to develop a Stormwater Servicing Master Plan for Regional roads.
The process will provide the Region with a basis to make sound decisions to service current and future growth that addresses existing issues and the expected impacts of climate change. The Stormwater Servicing Plan will provide an environmental and community focused vision for the next 25 years to accommodate future growth.
Ownership of stormwater infrastructure is shared between the Region of Peel and its three lower tier municipalities: Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon. This assignment will focus specifically on the stormwater infrastructure located on regional roads that is owned and maintained by the Region.
The Region of Peel has initiated this study to identify stormwater servicing requirements for existing regional roads. This study is being planned in accordance with the Master Planning process as set out in Section A.2.7 of the Municipal Engineer Association (MEA) Class EA (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 & 2015). This approach involves the preparation of a Master Plan document at the conclusion of Phase 1 and 2 of the Class EA process.
The main objectives for the Regional Stormwater Servicing plan are to:
- Create a comprehensive stormwater servicing strategy;
- Develop computer model(s) to assess and analyze the system;
- Establish levels of service to understand risks;
- Evaluate the strategies ability to meet level of service objectives while balancing cost efficiency;
- Develop an optimal implementation plan based on the evaluation; and,
- Prepare a Master Plan document for Phase 1 and 2 of the Class EA process which will be made available for public review and comment.
Public consultation is vital and key to the success of this study. We want to ensure that anyone interested in this study has the opportunity to get involved and provide input.
