Downtown Storm MitigationAs the City moves towards better understanding both the long and short term impacts of climate change, incremental improvements to the City’s key infrastructure are now becoming a key focus when system improvements are being considered in the existing 5-10 planning horizon. As part of these efforts to address localized flooding in the downtown, the City will be undertaking some temporary works to the City’s storm collection system serving a portion of this catchment area.

Work will include the installation of a temporary overflow pipe connected to the storm system served by the Robert Ostler Park outfall. These works are expected to provide some relief to the localized flooding being experienced on Shoppers Row between St. Ann’s and 10th Ave during extreme wet weather events. This work is temporary in nature as the City evaluates the best long term solution for the affected catchment area. The works will be monitored for performance over the coming winter season and should they achieve the desired level of success, the City will be looking to install  a second, similar temporary overflow arrangement on the outfall serving the Dogwood/16th Ave catchment area next year.
