Stantec selected for Queensway, Ontario sewer and water main project

Stantec has been selected by the Region of Peel to deliver the design of the Queensway East-Cawthra Trunk Sewer and upgrades to the Pressure Zone 2 Water System in Mississauga City, Ontario, Canada. Stantec will provide professional engineering services and construction management for the project, which is designed to ensure that the local community is well-served for decades to come. Tunneled sewer is expected to provide additional capacity for the growing community for the next 20 years.

The project consists of the Queensway East Trunk Sewer, Cawthra Trunk Sewer Phase 4, and the Queensway Transmission Main Pressure Zone 2 Upgrades.  Peel Region is embarking on this significant project that consists of approximately 6.4 km (3.9 miles) of tunneled trunk level sewers and up to 4.1 km (2.5 miles) of water feeder mains. This infrastructure is part of major system upgrades that will provide additional capacity to service growth within the Mississauga City center area to 2041 and beyond. The system will be designed to help Peel achieve its strategy to enhance overall system reliability and resiliency for the sanitary and water systems.

“It’s a privilege to help deliver such an important project for the Region of Peel,” said Neil Harvey, senior project manager, Stantec. “Stantec was recently recognized as the number one Trenchless company in North America by Trenchless Technology’s Top 50 Engineering Firms Survey.
