NOTICE OF EA ADDENDUM COMMENCEMENT – Schedule C Class Environmental Assessment Queensway East Trunk Sewer Project – Addition of Watermain Upgrades

By April 19, 2024April 24th, 2024Announcement, Resources

Peel Region has initiated a Schedule C Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) Addendum study for proposed watermain upgrades from Stillmeadow Road to Dixie Road in the City of Mississauga (see map).

In 2022, the Region completed a Schedule C Municipal Class EA for the Wastewater Capacity Improvements in Central Mississauga which included the Queensway East Trunk Sewer (QET). Since the completion of the EA, the Region has identified the need to increase the resiliency and capacity of the water pressure system in the area (Zone 2) by upgrading the watermain within the QET study area along the Queensway (from Stillmeadow Road to Dixie Road). The improvements will service future growth and ensure continued alignment with the Region’s long-term plan for providing water service. The MCEA Addendum Study will develop and evaluate potential locations for infrastructure, considering technical constraints, the existing environment as well as stakeholder input.

This notice signals the commencement of the MCEA Addendum Study, which will define the problem, identify and evaluate alternatives, and determine a preferred solution in consultation with the City of Mississauga, regulatory agencies, the public, Indigenous Communities and stakeholders. The MCEA Addendum Study is being conducted in compliance with Schedule C of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, amended 2007, 2011, 2015) which was the approved process followed for the 2022 EA.

Your Input is Important:
Public and agency consultation is a key element of the MCEA Addendum Study process and input will be sought throughout this study. Details regarding a future Public Information Centre (PIC) will be advertised as the MCEA Addendum Study progresses. Upon completion of the MCEA Addendum Study, an EA Addendum Report will be prepared and placed on the public record for a minimum 30-day review period. The report will detail the planning and consultation process and the preferred alternative. Comments received through the course of the Study will be considered and documented in the EA Addendum report. Additional information related to the MCEA Addendum Study and consultation process may be obtained through the project webpage at (Mississauga)
