Flood and Erosion Control Study: Stoney Creek and Battlefield Creek

Flood and Erosion Control Study: Stoney Creek and Battlefield Creek

Conservation Ontario Class Environmental Assessment

The Hamilton Conservation Authority (HCA) is conducting a study to investigate possible flood and erosion control alternatives for the Stoney Creek and Battlefield Creek watersheds. The focus is 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.


Public Information Centres were held on March 28, 2017 and November 28, 2017. A Preliminary Preferred Solution was presented at the November 28 PIC.

Comments and information regarding the study will be collected to assist the HCA in meeting the requirements of the Class EA process. If you wish to be involved in this study, provide comments, ask questions, or receive information, please contact one of the project representatives identified below. Additional information on the project, as well as additional consultation opportunities will be made available as the study progresses.
