Stormwater Programs For Residential Properties

In October last year, Council passed a resolution to form a working group to consider a program for residential properties.  As a result of the working group, the City of Mississauga will have three stormwater programs for residential properties:

• Enhanced Residential Stormwater Outreach and Education Program
• Home Visit Pilot Program
• Stormwater Subsidy Program for Low-income Seniors and Persons with Disabilities in single residential homes

“The enhanced Outreach and Education Program together with a Stormwater Home Visit Pilot Program and a stormwater subsidy for low-income seniors and persons with disabilities will help address the needs of our residents and still allow the City to meet its stormwater financial responsibilities,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie.  “The working committee formed of Members of Council and staff listened to residents needs and concerns to help determine the most valuable and balanced approach for the City.”
