Mattamy will start filling in the temporary stormwater pond along Maple Grove Road this week. The pond is located just east of the Fairwinds subdivision, adjacent to Harmattan Avenue and Helm Circle. The work is expected to continue until September.
The pond was originally built along with the first homes in the Fairwinds subdivision, and was always meant to be a temporary facility for storing excess stormwater. The pond on Maple Grove, along with another temporary pond adjacent to Brigatine Avenue, will eventually be filled and new houses will be built on top.
A new permanent stormwater management pond is being built further along Maple Grove Road, and a second one will be built on Richcraft’s land between Maple Grove Road Hazeldean Road.
