Open house

The second open house was held March 6, 2014 to present the final draft, results and recommendations. Review the second Sediment Management Strategy Study presentation (pdf 4 MB).

The first public open house was held on Thursday, October 3, 2013, where residents had an opportunity to learn about the study— what area it covers, why it is being done, research and fieldwork findings, sediment management options and next steps. The open house began with a presentation, followed by feedback and questions from the public. Review the Sediment Management Strategy Study presentation (pdf, 6 MB).

Sediment accumulation within Oakville’s harbours directly impacts operations and their suitability for recreational uses. Sediment dredging operations are performed routinely in both harbours to allow for continued and convenient recreational boating.
