The Town of Oakville is carrying out a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment for a detailed assessment of mitigation and flood reduction alternatives for Munn’s Creek. The study area includes lands south of Upper Middle Road to the Morrison Wedgewood Diversion Channel.
Building upon the findings of the Flood Prioritization Study, the focus of this study is to understand the flood risks and then establish approaches to mitigate them.
Two open houses were held to give opportunity for the public to review and provide comments on the study findings. Review the documents from these public meeting:
The study is being carried out in accordance with the 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. The Class EA process includes public and agency consultation, an evaluation of flood reduction alternatives, an assessment of the potential environmental effects of the proposed improvements, and identification of reasonable measures to help reduce any adverse impacts.
