Update: Two down-bound lanes open for Claremont Access. Sherman Access is reduced to one lane.
The City of Hamilton invoked the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process for the Old Dundas Road Sewage Pumping Station (HC005) in order to determine the preferred alternative to alleviate basement and street level flooding occurring within the study area during significant precipitation and snowmelt events.
Field investigations before commencing EA
Prior to commencing the EA, field investigations including sanitary manhole inspections, smoke testing, flow monitoring, and computer modelling and analysis were completed in 2013. These investigations were undertaken to determine the causes and extent of flooding in the study area. It was determined that stormwater and groundwater are infiltrating significantly into the sanitary sewer system. As a result of excess infiltration/inflow, the sanitary sewer system and the Old Dundas Road Sewage Pumping Station (HC005) are unable to convey flows during significant precipitation events. As a result, basements in the area have flooded several times in recent years and sewage has discharged at street level at the sanitary manhole at the intersection of Old Dundas Road and Montgomery Drive.
