Within the City of Mississauga there is a section of the East Trunk Sanitary Sewer (ETSS) (constructed in 1975, with an energy dissipation chamber (EDC) constructed in 1970), that has been abandoned for approximately nine years as a result of extensive corrosion in various locations within the sewer.
The Region of Peel is undertaking a study to identify if, and how the existing abandoned ETSS or a new offline storage facility could be used for storage of peak sanitary flows. The main benefit would be a reduction in peak flows entering the G.E. Booth Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) while continuing to meet the sanitary service demands from a growing population.
A Schedule B Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) study has been initiated to identify the best sanitary storage solution. The Class EA includes opportunities for public, Indigenous community and stakeholder discussion and feedback.
Online Public Engagement
Online Public Engagement has been arranged to provide details regarding the Class EA study, including project background, evaluation of alternatives, conceptual designs, proposed mitigation measures, and the anticipated schedule for construction. Electronic display boards will be available to the public on peelregion.ca/public-works/environmental-assessments starting April 22, 2021.
The Online Public Engagement provides an opportunity for local residents, businesses and interested members of the public to review and comment on the evaluation of alternatives, including selection of the recommended alternative.
How to Get Involved
Please submit any comments or concerns by May 05, 2021. Any input received by that date will be incorporated into the Project File Report, which will be available for public review when the study is completed.
