Brentano Stormwater Management Pond

Updated: November 5rd, 2017



Sherway neighbours working together as a community made a difference


Fellow neighbours, it is with great pleasure that we share the news that a Brentano Stormwater Pond is dead.
Through our community meeting and support through S.H.O.R.A. we have convinced MTO to relocate the stormwater management pond from the Sherway community to the QEW Dixie Road interchange loop (cloverleaf).
MTO reports that the relocation of the pond is meeting MOECC requirements and does not impact any additional properties or back onto residential homes. They will ensure that its design will include all standard safety and maintenance requirements.
S.H.O.R.A. is committed to keeping our residents informed on all future meetings regarding this storm water pond location change, and the upcoming Detailed Design Phase of the QEW/Dixie Interchange project.  Please send questions to info@sherwayhomeowners.com
Sincerely,

To the Residents of Sherway,

You may have received an email today from Charles Sousa M.P.P. regarding the proposed Brentano Stormwater Pond planned in the QEW/Dixie Interchange improvement project.  I am very pleased to inform you that the proposed Stormwater Pond has been officially relocated in the MTO preliminary design plans to inside the QEW/Dixie interchange.  This moves the pond outside of our neighbourhood borders, and the pond will not back onto any homes. 

This is fantastic news and a big win for all of Sherway. 

This would not have happened without 4 stakeholders:

  • Charles Sousa M.P.P.  
  • Ward 1 Councillor Jim Tovey  
  • Jamie Pugh, S.H.O.R.A. VP & Director of Stormwater Management
  • The Community of Sherway


Thank you to everyone that made this change possible.

Update: May 16th, 2017


A Stormwater Management Pond (SWMP) at the intersection of Brentano Road & Laughton Avenue has been planned as part of upcoming improvements to the QEW/Dixie corridor. 

Details on the plan can be found on the QEW Improvements Website; created by MMM GROUP. Page 13 of the TESR Executive summary shows the proposed SWMP.

Due to inadequate consultation on the SWMP, the community of Sherway along with Charles Sousa MPP, demanded an information session regarding the project with MMM GROUP & MTO.

The meeting was held on June 15th 2016. Details regarding the meeting can be found in this Mississauga News article.

Since the community meeting with Charles Sousa MPP, Councilor Jim Tovey and MTO representatives, SHORA learned that MTO is proceeding with the detailed design phases of the QEW improvements. This includes the reconfiguration of the Dixie Road Interchange, except in regards to the proposed Stormwater Management Ponds.

Thanks to the efforts of many Sherway residents, MTO has deferred proceeding with the detail design phase of the Brentano SWMP until additional preliminary design investigations on SWMP locations have been completed.

Following the June 2016 meeting, MTO working together with local politicians have shown a real commitment to work with Sherway and address our concerns.
SHORA has had a seat at the table for several meetings representing our SWMP concerns and to discuss and review alternative SWMP locations.

On October 5th, 2016; MTO released an official statement regarding the Stormwater Management Pond. Click here to view the official statement.

Recently MTO has developed an alternative SWMP location and needs to consult with the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) Minister, as stormwater requirements originate from MOECC and these agencies have a formal review process.

The timing on our next steps is difficult to predict as we are dealing with multiple government agencies, and their processes; but we do understand that an alternative location will have to cross the MOECC Minister's desk before being considered and approved.

SHORA will remain in constant contact with local governments and politicians to push our agenda and come to a mutually satisfactory result on this issue.
