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 this study to identify if, and how the existing abandoned ETSS or a new offline storage facility could be utilized for storage of peak sanitary flows. The main benefit would be a reduction in peak flows entering the G.E. Booth Wastewater Treatment Plant 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 solution for the assignment. The Class EA includes opportunities for public, Indigenous community and stakeholder discussion and feedback.
How to Get Involved
As part of the Study, online public engagement will be arranged to allow local residents and interested members of the public the first opportunity to review and comment on the alternatives, including the recommended alternative, the evaluation process, and next steps in the Study process.
Display boards will be available to the public on peelregion.ca/public-works/environmental-assessments, at a later date.
