Be rain ready!

The town manages stormwater to make sure there are a range of measures in place to decrease the risk of flooding and to reduce pollution. Stormwater management ensures that our stormwater system protects Oakville residents while preserving our natural environment.

As part of the town’s long-term vision for stormwater management, we are developing a Stormwater Master Plan to assess what has been done—what still needs to be done—and priorities for the future.

Be part of developing the plan and enhancing the quality of life for everyone in Oakville!

Get involved so we’re all rain ready!

Phase 2 of our plan is currently underway which aims to assess the town’s existing stormwater management network and document its ability to respond to continued land use changes (e.g. infill development, land redevelopment) and climate change (e.g. increased rainfall frequency and intensity). We anticipate to complete our Phase 2 work this year.

Our Environmental Assessment Study (EA) will identify stormwater management system vulnerabilities that may require improvements as well as the adoption of new/revised policies, bylaws, and/or standards to ensure that the town’s system continues to operate effectively for the protection of persons, property and the environment.

This will be the second Open House for the Phase 2 Stormwater Master Plan. The town will be presenting information on the results of the modelling, assessment process, flood management alternatives as well as the prefered management plan for future mitigation.

Drop in and share your thoughts

Good planning involves the community. The town is interested in hearing from local residents, businesses, landowners and more on how we can all be rain ready in Oakville.

Background

Our EA study will be completed in keeping with Section A.2.7 Master Plans, as defined in the Municipal Engineers Association “Municipal Class Environmental Assessment,” (October 2000 updated in 2007, 2011 & 2015), which will address Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class EA Process. A key component of this study will be consultation with the public including two open houses.
