Project staff received feedback about what activities residents wanted and what they valued most about Mill Creek Ravine Park during a preliminary public meeting on June 9, 2016. The information collected at the public meeting was used by City staff to help prioritize water quality improvement projects.
Project staff now need feedback from the public to determine the best way forward. You're invited to attend a second public meeting to share your thoughts.
Date: Thursday, November 3, 2016
Location: C3 Church | 9425 76 Avenue
Time: 5-7 p.m.
The north section of Mill Creek starts north of Argyll Road and ends at the junction of Connors and Scona Roads. The southern portion of Mill Creek was diverted into a tunnel at 75 Street when the surrounding industrial area was developed in the 1960s and 1970s. The water in the tunnel then flows into Mill Creek north of Argyll Road. To continue improving water quality in Mill Creek, the City has considered oil and grit separators, stormwater ponds, wetlands and sewer diversions along or near the north section of Mill Creek. The City is considering the following improvements to these options :
• Installing oil and grit separators at strategic locations to improve water quality.
• Creating a small stormwater pond or wetland feature just north of Argyll Road.
• Constructing a new stormwater sewer to divert high flows.
