Brant Street storm sewer upgrades Sept. 17-Oct 12

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.

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.

  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?
