‘NO SKATING,’ ‘NO FISHING,’ ‘NO SWIMMING’ signs posted at the Municipality’s stormwater management ponds

The Municipality of Middlesex Centre has signs posted at its stormwater management ponds (commonly referred to as ‘storm ponds’ or ‘drainage ponds’) advising that leisure activities are not permitted. This is due to the inherent safety risks that surround ice skating in the winter and swimming in the summer.

Since such engineered ponds were constructed, signs have been posted at the following stormwater ponds:
• Meadowcreek Park in Ilderton near Willow Ridge Road
• Optimist Park in Ilderton near Meredith Drive
• Jefferies Road
• Caverhill Park in Komoka
• Union Avenue in Komoka

Water entering stormwater management facilities is untreated stormwater runoff that typically drains over a variety of surfaces including roads, driveways and parking lots, through a series of pipes and into the ponds. The water entering the ponds is untreated, and therefore, the suitability of the ice for skating and the suitability of the water for swimming is not known and is not monitored. Stormwater management ponds are not supervised and the Municipality cannot take any responsibility for the safety of persons who attempt to use these ponds for leisure activities. Therefore, the Municipality has taken the step of posting signs at the ponds to prohibit public use of the stormwater management ponds for leisure activities.

Facts about Stormwater Management Ponds

Stormwater Management Ponds are essentially construction facilities that are part of the Municipality’s
overall stormwater infrastructure system. These ponds receive rainwater and runoff from the
surrounding neighbourhood including streets, driveways and parking lots. Dirt, debris and waste settle to
the bottom of the pond, while water flows out to the receiving water body. Removal of dirt and debris is
usually completed every 10-15 years, allowing the pond to return to its designed water volume
capacity. Urban runoff is also subject to oils, road salt and other chemicals—plants in the pond area help
to improve the water quality of stormwater runoff.

Household and Recyclable Wheelie Bins & Sweet Sweeping

In an effort to complete the required spring street sweeping of our roads, Middlesex Centre would like to remind residents that when placing your household and recyclable wheelie bins out for pick up, please do so by placing them behind the curb and out of the roadway. This ensures that every road and curb line is thoroughly cleaned. Middlesex Centre once again thanks it’s residents for their continued cooperation
