Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) is preparing to undertake remedial bank stabilization works to protect York Region’s sanitary infrastructure along Pomona Creek, a tributary of the East Don River, in the City of Markham. The main objective of the works are to remediate the failed bank in order to provide underground sanitary infrastructure protection and reduce public safety risks.
The project area is located along a stretch of Pomona Creek, a tributary of the East Don River, northwest of the closet major intersection at John Street and Bayview Avenue. The immediate bank failure is located northeast of the Pomona Valley Tennis Club parking lot, which is found within Pomona Mills Park at 200 John Street, Markham.

In early 2018, the Regional Municipality of York Environmental Services Department advised TRCA of a bank failure near the Region’s Central Collector Sewer in Pomona Mills Park. TRCA’s Erosion Risk Management team immediately initiated hazard monitoring to assess the risk and commenced planning, design and permitting for remedial infrastructure protection and bank stabilization works in March 2018. Remedial works were implemented between November 19th and November 30th, 2018.
Scope of Work
- Development of detailed designs drawings
- Obtain all necessary permits and approvals to proceed with construction
- Construction of remedial works
TRCA completed the project on November 30th, 2018. TRCA will continue to monitor the treatment to ensure the bank stabilization is performing as intended.
The Project Planning Team is located at TRCA’s Boyd Field Centre Office in Vaughan:
