Flood Remediation Project - Watercourse 11

Fifty Point Conservation Area Notice of Public Information Centre No. 2

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 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 Project Team, at the PIC # 2, will present the study progress to date and the preliminary recommended alternatives. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with the Team and review the alternatives and their evaluation to address flooding in the study area.

Please join us at our second Public Information Centre (PIC #2) to learn more about the study, existing conditions in the study area, preliminary recommended alternatives, 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 staff, consultant staff, and provide input into the planning process. Details are as follows:
