A new stormwater management pond, including a new outlet to the Carp River, is being constructed within the property at 1635 -1655 Maple Grove Road, between Silver Seven Road and Huntmar Drive.
The need for this stormwater management pond, known as Pond 4, was identified in the Kanata West Master Servicing Study and is required to support ongoing residential development in the area.
This pond will service the future development area between Palladium Drive and Poole Creek on the west side of the Carp River and is being constructed now to facilitate two new subdivisions being developed along Maple Grove Road by Mattamy and Tartan/Tamarack.
This pond will allow Mattamy to decommission their existing pond servicing Fairwinds South that is located along Maple Grove Road. All aspects of the proposal have been reviewed by the City, the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority and the Ministry of Environment. Required permits for the infrastructure project were recently issued and work on-site began in February.
The project is expected to be completed by and operational for home construction within Q2 of this year.
