Materials available on our Flood Mitigation Opportunities Study for Joshua's Creek page.
The Town of Oakville has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) to assess flood risks along the Joshua Creek south of Upper Middle Road to Lake Ontario. Town staff are seeking public input related to this project, including alternative mitigation measures, evaluation criteria, potential environmental effects, and any other concerns.
The study is being conducted in compliance with Schedule ‘B’ of the Municipal Engineers Association (MEA) Municipal Class EA document (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015), which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. This will be the first of two planned public consultation events for the Flood Mitigation Opportunities Study.
Materials available will include background information on flood-prone sites, updates from investigations and preliminary alternatives for flood mitigation.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this will be a virtual public consultation event with Study information made available on the town’s website for review and comment. Please direct all comments and any questions to the following study team members via email or mail by March 4, 2021.
