Excess Water Conditions in local Park – Warning!

By Events, Issues, Resources, Uncategorized

Current water levels along the Lake Ontario shoreline are high and are nearing the levels set in 2017, when extreme conditions caused significant damage along the lakeshore in Mississauga.  Levels in Lake Ontario are higher than usual due to higher than usual intake from Lake Erie and restriction of water outflow at the Moses-Saunders Power Dam.   Staff are regularly patrolling the City of Mississauga shoreline and report some flooding along the waterfront specifically at:

 

  • Jack Darling Park (public access closed where the water has washed over pathways)
  • C. Saddington Park
  • Marina Park (public access closed where the water has washed over pathways)
  • Public access closed at pedestrian underpass at Lakeshore Road
  • Lawrence (public access closed where the water has washed over pathways)

High water is expected to continue along the waterfront for some time and peak over the next month before slowly receding.  I have attached some pictures of current conditions for your consideration.

  • Photo 1-St Lawrence.jpg
  • Photo 2-JC Saddington.jpg
  • Photo 3-Marina Park.jpg
  • Photo 4 – Jack Darling.jpg

 

The current weather forecast indicates that rain will continue to fall today and continue until Friday with forecasted accumulation of 40 mm of precipitation by the end of the week.  In addition, we are currently experiencing high gusts of easterly winds, which directly affect wave action into the shoreline. The Works Operations and Maintenance Incident Management Team has been activated and will be meeting again this afternoon to report on conditions.  I will provide another update following this meeting.

 

Mitigation Strategies

  • City staff are on stand-by and monitoring high risk flood areas.
  • Dewatering pumps within the Lisgar district were set up as per the High Water Protocol.
  • 1,000 sand bags are ready for use, if required.
  • Crews are standing by to clear debris on affected park pathways once waves recede in preparation for the Mississauga Marathon this weekend.

The City of Mississauga has received a Lake Ontario Flood Watch from the Credit Valley Conservation (CVC). Water safety messaging is in place on the City’s website.
