Peel Region, the regional municipality to the west of Toronto that contains the local municipalities of Brampton, Mississauga and Caledon, is one of the fastest-growing areas in Canada. Its current population of almost 1.5 million people is expected to grow to just under 2 million by 2041, and population and employment growth targets have been set out to 2051 by the provincial government. As a result, there are plans for greenfield and intensification development in many areas of Peel, including Caledon. In addition, significant expansion of the water and wastewater infrastructure in Caledon is already being constructed to support this growth, with more currently at the planning and design stages.
CIMA+ is part of a team led by Ainley that has been retained by the Region to provide design, design review, and construction services for the expansion of the water and wastewater distribution system that is required for development within the community of Bolton in Caledon. Nine separate sites were selected for the servicing expansion, with a total of 8.5 km of watermain and 10.8 km of sanitary sewers to be built under nine separate construction contracts. CIMA+ will also provide design review for the new water booster pumping station that will supply water to the new pressure zone required for an area of planned development. The new water and wastewater infrastructure will connect the proposed development areas to the Region’s Lake Ontario-based infrastructure systems.
