Tamarac Green Park Stormwater Management Facility Retrofit

Notice of Construction In the Town of Aurora

Tamara map location

York Region, in partnership with Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority and Town of Aurora, will be retrofitting the Tamarac Green Park stormwater management facility located at the southeast corner of Henderson Drive and McClellan Way. The crews will be cleaning and modifying the stormwater management facility to reduce the amount of phosphorus entering the local stream and improve the quality of water entering the Lake Simcoe watershed.

WHEN: March 17 to fall 2020

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?

  • The work is limited to the area around the stormwater management facility; due to the nature of the work, there will be some construction-related noise, though every effort to minimize it will be made
  • There will be increased construction-related traffic along Henderson Drive
  • The work will occur between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday to Friday with periodic work on Saturday
  • There is no access to Tamarac Green Park or the walking trails for the duration of the work
  • The sidewalk on the south side of Henderson Drive between McClellan Way and Tamarac Trail will be closed; please use the sidewalk on the north side of Henderson Drive for the duration of the project
  • Some of the trees near the stormwater management facility will be removed prior to construction; following the construction work, approximately 180 new native trees will be planted that are suitable to the soil conditions
  • There is no impact to your water or wastewater services and access to all homes and buildings will be maintained

As with all construction projects, some work may be re-scheduled due to weather or other conditions.

Thank you for your patience while we complete this vital work.
