The City is initiating a maintenance project at Bloore pond, Brampton’s largest stormwater pond, to remove the stored dirt, sand and sediment at the bottom of the pond and replace vegetation around the pond. Stormwater ponds are constructed to temporarily store runoff so it does not cause flooding. This maintenance project will help restore the pond’s storage capacity and improve water quality leaving the pond. Stormwater pond cleanouts are essential to the City’s ongoing stormwater
inspections, maintenance, and services programs.
Bloore Pond, located at 10150 Dixie Road, was built in 2004 and is currently storing about 15,000 cubic meters of dirt, sand and sediment. This is equal to 8,800 pickup truck cargo beds. This pond collects stormwater runoff from an area of 740 hectares in size and services over 10,000 homes and businesses upstream of the pond.
Following the April 13th, 2022
presentation to Council, staff have been directed to move forward with the maintenance of Bloore Pond which includes the removal of stored dirt, sand and sediments and dead vegetation.
Maintenance at Bloore Pond has been completed in Fall 2023.
