For fifty years, the town has had a stormwater system in place—and we’ve made a lot of progress! To build on this progress and ensure a long-term vision for stormwater management, we are developing a Stormwater Master Plan called Be rain ready.
This plan is especially essential because there has been an increase in extreme rain in Southwestern Ontario. To protect residents from flooding while also preserving our natural environment, the master plan will help guide us towards a rain ready Oakville:
The most important part of developing the plan is you! We are currently working on Phase 2 of the plan where we are assessing how the town currently manages stormwater to identify gaps and opportunities so that as the town grows and the climate changes, we will be rain ready!
We continue to seek input and feedback, please email your questions or comments to:
