Effective January 14, Oakville is under a stay-at-home order as part of the second provincial emergency due to COVID-19. Other restrictions are in effect and we must all follow public health guidelines. The town is reviewing the provincial declaration and will post any service impacts as soon as possible.
The Town of Oakville has completed the Munn's Creek Flood Mitigation Opportunities Study. The study area includes lands south of Upper Middle Road to the Morrison Wedgewood Diversion Channel. The purpose of the study was to assess impacts from riverine flooding, assess potential risks, and develop mitigation options.
The recommended solution to reduce flood risk within the study area includes the replacement of existing culvert crossings with larger span structures, once the culverts have reached their end of service life. The structures recommended for upgrades include:
The recommended culvert upgrades will also be designed to improve fish habitat and wildlife passage and enhance the ecological function of the Munn's Creek corridor.
The project file has been prepared to document the planning and decision-making process for this study. The project file is being placed on the public record for a 30 day review period from and including October 3 to November 1, 2019. Review the project file below:
