POSTPONED Chedoke Creek, Storm and Waste Water Management Session

Dear Ward 1 Friends and Neighbours

A public event we had planned for the evening of March 31st at McMaster Innovation Park detailing the sewage spillage in Chedoke Creek and the City’s stormwater management system has to be rescheduled to a future date.  With cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) emerging locally, I am following the advice of the City of Hamilton’s Chief Medical Officer of Health to limit non-essential events as part of our overall effort to prevent the spread of the virus.   Please visit for more information or call Public Health Services’ COVID-19 Hotline (905) 546-2424 ext. 7970 or email:  [email protected]

Let us care for one another and be particularly mindful of our most vulnerable neighbours who may not have the might or means to access the necessities.  Let us seek solace in places of light and take heed in the knowledge that we are all in this together.  I am thankful for the City’s public health, health care and first responders’ teams as well as the city staff who have been working very long hours in their service to Hamilton’s Emergency Operations Centre (EOC).  The EOC is the municipal control group responsible for coordinating and supporting the City’s emergency response.

With respect,

Maureen Wilson
