East Burlington Creeks Flood Hazard Mapping

Do you live in the Tuck, Shoreacres, Appleby or Sheldon Creek areas in Burlington or Oakville?

Conservation Halton is updating floodplain mapping for these areas in your community.

 

 

Conservation Halton has retained consulting and engineering company, Wood, to update the floodplain mapping and modelling. Advances in technology allows us to better understand flood hazards and to develop more accurate floodplain mapping. One of Conservation Halton’s top priorities is to protect life and property from natural hazards and updating floodplain mapping is one of the ways we do that.

Floodplain mapping is used by Conservation Halton and municipal partners to identify areas that may be susceptible to riverine or shoreline flooding, and to inform flood forecasting, emergency response, community planning, infrastructure upgrades and other flood prevention efforts. A floodplain is an area of land that is flooded by a nearby creek or lake during large storms.

Public Engagement

An important part of the process of updating floodplain mapping is to inform and engage with residents and other stakeholders in the study area.

Conservation Halton will host the first public engagement session of the study to share background information about the work being done and provide an opportunity for residents to ask questions and share feedback.  A second public engagement session to present draft, updated flood hazard mapping and engage further will occur in Winter 2022.

Public Engagement Session 1

Join us for a virtual public engagement session on October 14, 2021 at 7pm to learn more about the study, ask questions, and share feedback. Unable to join us live? Information from the session will be available on this webpage and your feedback is encouraged until October 28. 

 
 

Public Engagement Session 2

More information will be provided in Winter 2022.
