Today, the City of Mississauga completed the final application for the Aerial Spray Program, which began on May 23. Over six days, the City conducted two applications of the spray in affected areas that targeted fall cankerworm and gypsy moth caterpillars on both City and private property.
During this year’s program, the City sprayed more than 22 Mississauga neighbourhoods throughout six Wards. The spray area consisted of 1,940 hectares (4,794 acres) of land equivalent to roughly 1,552 football fields.
Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) announced that its newest conservation area, being constructed along the Mississauga waterfront, will be named in honour of the late Mississauga Ward 1 Councillor Jim Tovey. The announcement came at a packed celebration of the life and legacy of Councillor Tovey, held at the partially renovated Small Arms Inspection Building in Mississauga.
Councillor Tovey’s unique connection with the Region of Peel, CVC and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority served to bring the organizations together to partner on the development of the Lakeview Waterfront Connection – a project that will result in a new 26-hectare waterfront conservation area in Mississauga’s Lakeview community.
“Jim imagined a different path forward for the Lakeview waterfront, where residents can enjoy the waterfront experience and the natural environment can thrive,” said Nando Iannicca, Chair of Credit Valley Conservation and Councillor for Mississauga Ward 7. “Naming the conservation area in his honour was a unanimous decision by Credit Valley Conservation’s Board of Directors, recognizing Jim’s pivotal role in this project. It is our way of saying thank you and honouring his legacy forever.”
The conservation area’s final name will reflect further consultation with the Tovey family, project partners and the project’s Community Liaison Committee.
Jim Tovey recognized the opportunity to reuse clean fill that was being generated by Region of Peel capital works projects as a resource to enhance the natural environment and improve the local community. This responsible reuse of material is central to the Lakeview Waterfront Connection project.
“The Region of Peel is proud to be part of the transformation on the waterfront and delighted that CVC has recognized Jim Tovey’s legacy in such a meaningful way” said Frank Dale, Peel Regional Chair. “The new conservation area is a victory for the community and the environment. It is the realization of Jim Tovey’s bold vision and reflects his passion for his community.” Continue reading New CVC conservation area to be named for Jim Tovey→
‘Rive Gauche’ is French for ‘left bank’ — the left bank of a river as you travel downstream.
In Paris the ‘rive gauche’ includes Montparnasse…the Paris of the authors and artists. In Port Credit the ‘rive gauche’ is the east bank of the Credit River as travels toward Lake Ontario…with its dining and nightlife.
Available in a variety of sizes (and any colour as long as it’s white) the marine flags aren’t just a nautical touch, they spell out PORT CREDIT.
The price is all-inclusive and includes shipping by Canada Post anywhere in Canada (only). Outside of Canada please contact us and we’ll advise of shipping costs.
Credit Valley Conservation advises that 2-5 mm of precipitation has fallen throughout the watershed since Thursday with an additional 80-100 mm of precipitation expect over the next five days in the form of rain or freezing rain.
Water levels along the Credit River and its major tributaries have increased due to the rain and will continue to rise. Some minor flooding in low lying areas is anticipated. These areas may include Townline Road in Orangeville, Inglewood, Terra Cotta, Crestview Lake and Caledon Lake in Caledon.
The public is reminded to exercise extreme caution around all water bodies. Banks adjacent to rivers and creeks are very slippery at this time and when combined with current weather conditions, pose a serious hazard. People are encouraged to keep their children and pets away from all watercourses and off frozen water bodies, which will be extremely unsafe.
CVC will continue to monitor the watercourse and the weather. This Flood Watch will be updated by 2pm Monday April 16, 2018.
For more information on this Flood Watch message, contact CVC during office hours at 905- 670-1615. To report a flood afterhours, please call 1-800-215-8505.
