Flood Mitigation Opportunities Study for Munn’s Creek

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:

  • McCraney Street West culvert
  • Miller Road culvert
  • Oakdale Drive to Onslow Court pedestrian culvert crossing.

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.
