East Morrison Creek Erosion Mitigation Study

The study aims to identify erosion risks, define erosion hazards, and develop solutions to mitigate erosion for East Morrison Creek.

Overview

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.

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.

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.
