Brant Street storm sewer upgrades Sept. 17-Oct 12

oilgrit2

Notice — The installation of an Oil Grit Separator at the end of the Brant Street storm sewer (terminating at the Waterfront Hotel) is being proposed. The device will be installed on an existing storm sewer line to improve the quality of stormwater runoff before discharging into the lake. The sketch below shows the proposed location of the device adjacent to Brant/Lakeshore. Anticipated construction start is September 17, 2018 and substantial completion date is October 12, 2018. Festivals & Events staff were consulted and they confirmed that the project timeline will not impact any event.

During construction the laneway to the Waterfront Hotel will be closed. Hotel management is made aware of this project, during construction they will be using the alternate entrance.

  1. How much for this “oil & grit separator”? Seems redundant as it will likely be dug up when they demo the hotel??

  2. Marianne what I would like to see and I am sure other residents would also is a side drawing of the tunneling they are doing on Guelph Line and the purpose of the project.. This project will be going on for another year and it does disrupt traffic at Prospect, Harvester and Mainway. There has to be a tremendous amount of excavation and logistics to do the work and remove the tunnel material, If this is explained to the residents they may not be so upset with the Inconvenience.

What's your take?

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful. Got an idea or comment you want to share privately? Please, get in touch:
