• Open House for 2018 Aerial Spray Program to Combat Cankerworms and Gypsy Moths – April 10

    This spring, the City of Mississauga is conducting an aerial spray. The spray will lower fall cankerworm and gypsy moth caterpillar populations and prevent tree loss. To prepare for the spray, the City is hosting five information open house events for those who live or work in the designated spray areas.

    City staff will share details about the spray, explain how to control fall cankerworm and gypsy moth caterpillars on private property and provide an overview about the long-term health of Mississauga’s tree canopy.

  • Cankerworm – Tree Banding Update

    Forestry staff are recommending that now is an appropriate time to remove the sticky bands from the trees.  The City just finished removing the bands on city-owned trees in early January.  This is because most, if not all of the female cankerworm moths have finished emerging from the ground. This will give the trees some time to dry out (breathe) before another band is placed in April to catch the caterpillars.

     

    Below is  information on gypsy moth and cankerworm lifecycles and approximate timing of control measures to help out. 

     

    There will be open houses this Spring with additional updates and aerial spraying information. I will update you with these dates, when available.

  • Region of Peel Geotechnical Investigation on Lakeshore Road West: Lane closures/restrictions

    The Region is currently undertaking a Class Environmental Assessment for the decommissioning of the Front Street Sewage Pumping Station and re-routing the flows to the west by constructing a trunk (large diameter) sanitary sewer along Lakeshore Road West as shown in the attached sketch.

     

    This project has been selected to receive Infrastructure Canada funding under the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund. The Region has decided to advance the geotechnical work for detailed design of the proposed trunk sewer to reach the project milestones set by the funding program.

     

    A geotechnical investigation has been initiated which includes drilling boreholes and installing monitoring wells along the entire alignment as part of the detailed design for the trunk sanitary sewer. The sewer, when constructed, will be in a tunnel underneath the municipal right-of-way, with minimal impact on traffic.

     

    The geotechnical investigation for the Lakeshore Trunk Sewer will result in lane closures on Lakeshore Road West as per the details below:

     

    Name of the Road to be closed: Sections 100-200m in length on Lakeshore Road West between Front Street and Owenwood Drive.

     

    Duration (Date/Time) for the closure: January 15 to May 31, 2018 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

     

    Apart from Lakeshore Road West, boreholes will also be drilled on the following side streets resulting in a lane closure lasting only for one day for each street between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.:

    • John Street South
    • Peter Street South
    • Mississauga Road South
    • Benson Avenue
    • Pine Avenue North
    • Maple Avenue North
    • Maple Avenue South
    • Broadview Avenue
    • Shawnmarr Road
    • Crozier Court
    • Ibar Way

  • Southdown Road Watermain Work

    Commencing January 15th, the Region of Peel will be replacing and improving the aging watermain along Southdown Rd. between South Sheridan Way and Wiseman Court. The work is expected to be ongoing until September. During this period, there will be intermittent lane closures on Southdown Rd. Below is the notice which the Region has distributed to the affected homes in the area.

     

    Also, please note that on the evening of January 22nd (with January 23rd or 24th as rain dates), the Region will be disconnecting an existing watermain on Erin Mills Parkway, just north of the QEW. This work will be completed in a single night, but there may be lane closures and noise for those in the area. We have attached a map with approximate location of this work.
