Timeline: Completed in September 2022.
The City of Barrie retrofitted and upgraded the Sunnidale Stormwater Management Facility, which is located on the south side of Sunnidale Road between Livingstone Street and Anne Street.
The specific improvements at the pond included:
- Installation of a storage and infiltration system beneath the existing pond, which means less flooding, less erosion, a reduction in phosphorus, and a better environment for fish in Kidd’s Creek
- Planting of new trees and shrubs, as well as seeding with native to the area seed mixes
- Regrading of the pond’s banks back to its original shape
- Naturalizing the pond to help attract pollinators
