Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In September and October of 2018, the Township received petitions for drainage works under Section 4 of the Drainage Act, and three requests for drain improvement under Section 78 of the Drainage Act. Subsequently, a Preliminary Report was prepared to improve Breslau Drain No. 1. On December 10, 2019, Council accepted the Preliminary Report for Breslau Drain No. 1 and directed Joel Miller of K. Smart Associates Limited to prepare a Final Report respecting improvements to Breslau Drain No. 1.

During the preparation of the final report, an additional Section 4 petition for drainage works was filed by Madwest Breslau Limited for proposed development between Fountain Street North and the Elroy Acres subdivision. On April 25th, 2022, Council directed K. Smart Associates Limited to address the Madwest petition as part of the Breslau Drain No. 1 Final Report.

K. Smart Associates Limited completed a comprehensive review of the watershed, including preliminary development plans that were available at the time of report preparation. The engineering design contained within the Final Report includes drainage improvements to existing developed areas, and made allowances for future development of the Madwest lands. In addition, the drain improvements have been designed to allow for future municipal wastewater servicing within and surrounding the existing Elroy Acres subdivision. The Final Report was filed with the Township on September 25th, 2023 and endorsed by Council, by By-Law 77-2023 on December 12th, 2023.

K. Smart Associates Limited prepared tender documents that included the drainage work identified in the Final Report and the necessary sanitary sewer work associated with the Madwest development. This was done to gain efficiencies and limit the construction impact to area residents as it made little sense to install the drainage works this year and then a year or two later have Madwest install the needed sanitary sewer system. On March 19th, Council awarded the tender for the drain and sanitary work to E. & E. Seegmiller Limited. Construction will be completed in 4 separate stages beginning in May of 2024, and be complete by September 2025.
