The Premier of Ontario has declared a province-wide state of emergency and issued a stay-at-home order in response to rising COVID-19 variant infection rates.
The Town of Oakville is undertaking a detailed study of the Joshua's Creek system south of Upper Middle Road to Lake Ontario. The focus of the study is to identify flood-prone sites in an effort to determine the most viable and responsible mitigation options to reduce flood risk.
The study is being carried out in accordance with the Schedule B project requirements as described in the Municipal Engineers Association’s Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) document (October 2000, as amended in 2015), approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.
Town staff are seeking public input related to this project, including alternative mitigation measures, evaluation criteria, potential environmental effects, and any other concerns. This is the first of two public consultation opportunities for the Flood Mitigation Opportunities Study
The following materials available for review include background information on flood-prone sites, updates from investigations and preliminary alternatives for flood mitigation.
