Was your home hit hard by the recent heavy rainfall on April 20, 2017, causing flooding to your basement?
The City has initiated the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment or Class EA process for the relocation of utilities located on the Highway 5 bridge spanning Grindstone Creek and the Canadian Pacific Railway in Waterdown.
The purpose of this Class EA is to identify and evaluate alternative solutions to permit the replacement and potential relocation of existing water, wastewater, hydro and telecommunications utilities to facilitate yet to be designed future bridge rehabilitation activities.
This study includes public, First Nations and Aboriginal Peoples, and review agency consultation, evaluation of alternatives, assessment of the impact of the proposed works, and identification of measures to mitigate any adverse impacts. Upon completion of the study, a Project File documenting the planning and decision making process followed, will be prepared and made available for public review.
