    Wastewater sewers and treatment facilities are a Regional infrastructure.

    At the time I am writing this it is pouring with rain outside. I just drove from my office on South Service Road down Appleby Line. The rain on the roads is inches deep. The storm sewers are backing up. There is real potential of flooding in southeast Burlington….again!!! Remember August 4, 2014.

    At the time of the 2014 flood a number of us asked about the impact of intensification projects on the municipal infrastructure, particularly storm sewers and wastewater facilities The Mayor and Councillors assured us there was nothing to worry about. I recall attending a meeting at which time a chart was displayed showing the amount of monies Burlington spent on wastewater upgrades versus other parts of Halton Region. We lagged far behind Milton and Oakville.

    If we intensify development in the mid-corridor area of the City, and development in the north end continues, where is all the rainwater going to flow? It can’t penetrate into the soil anymore because the land is developed. Despite what Stockwell Day said in the 2003 federal election water doesn’t run uphill. Does this mean residents in the south section of the City are at increased risk of flooding? Has a projection or analysis been done to evaluate the impact?

    And while we’re at it: I noticed in south Oakville that there have been a number of major projects to upgrade sewers and wastewater treatment facilities…seven on Lakeshore Road alone between Maplegrove and Coronation Park. Uh, where are the wastewater upgrades in south Burlington?

    Before we start fixating on intensification projects perhaps our Mayor, Council and the Planning Department should pause and reflect on whether or not we have the necessary infrastructure supports in place to handle the volume.
