Flood and Erosion Control Study
Stoney Creek and Battlefield Creek
Conservation Ontario Class Environmental Assessment
Notice of Intent and Public Information Centre No.1
The Hamilton Conservation Authority (HCA) has commenced a study to investigate possible flood and erosion control alternatives for the Stoney Creek and Battlefield Creek watersheds. The focus it to investigate possible options above the escarpment that would help to alleviate the flooding and erosion occurring below the escarpment. The study area is shown on the attached map.
The study is being conducted in accordance with Conservation Ontario’s procedures as outlined in the Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for Remedial Flood and Erosion Control Projects (2002, amended June 2013). The Class EA process includes public and agency consultation, characterization of the study area, evaluation of preliminary alternatives and determination of the potential environmental, social and economic effects of the proposed preferred alternative including identification of measures to mitigate any potential adverse impacts.
Please join us at our first Public Information Centre to learn more about the study, existing conditions in the study area, possible alternatives to be considered, and the next steps in the study process. The Public Information Centre will be a drop-in open house that will provide an opportunity for you to view display boards, discuss the project with the HCA, consultant staff, and provide input into the planning process. Details are as follows:
DATE: March 28, 2017
TIME: 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
