The town has engaged Matrix Solutions Inc. to carry out a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment to identify erosion risks, define erosion hazards, and develop preferred options to mitigate erosion for the East Morrison Creek study area.
The study area extends from the Morrison-Wedgwood diversion channel, directly east of Oakville Town Hall, upstream to the culvert at Postridge Drive. This area of concern was identified in the 2021 Creek Inventory and Assessment Study.
Notice of Study Commencement
The Town of Oakville (the town) through Matrix Solutions Inc. has initiated the East Morrison Creek Erosion Mitigation Study.
This study will follow the planning and design process as defined in the Municipal Engineers Association Municipal Class Environmental Assessment document (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011, 2015, and 2023) as a Schedule B project.
There are four phases to this project:
- Phase one – Problem definition
- Phase two – Development and review of options
- Phase three – Preferred alternatives selection and preliminary design
- Phase four – Preparation of environmental study report
As of mid-December 2023, tasks in phase one are being completed. More information will be posted as the study progresses.
Have your say!
Attend a public information centre
Two public information centres (PICs) are planned to present the existing creek conditions, discuss alternative solutions, environmental impacts, evaluation of preferred options and recommendations.
PIC dates and details will be shared as the study progresses.
