Notice of Intent and Public Information Centre No.1

The Study
The Hamilton Conservation Authority (HCA) has commenced a study to investigate possible flood remediation measures for Watercourse 11 in Fifty Point Conservation Area including the private lands and City of Hamilton lands located to the north. The privately held lands contain residential dwellings that may be impacted by this flooding. The focus of this study is to investigate the causes of the flooding and provide an evaluation of alternative solutions to the flooding issue, as well as finalize the preliminary design for the preferred alternative for flood remediation, if applicable. The study area is shown on the attached map.

The Process
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, if applicable, including identification of measures to mitigate any potential adverse impacts.

Public Consultation
