Virtual meeting on updating flood hazard mapping for Tuck, Shoreacres, Appleby, and Sheldon Creeks June 7th

By Staff

June 5th, 2023



Climate change, flooding, making the right decisions now with the information available is a challenge.

Conservation Halton (CH) is updating flood hazard mapping for Tuck, Shoreacres, Appleby, and Sheldon Creeks that cross through parts of East Burlington and southwest Oakville.

Flood hazard mapping is an important tool that supports CH’s regulatory and planning and flood forecasting and warning programs, as well as municipal emergency management, flood mitigation, and infrastructure design. “Flood hazard” means an area near a river or stream not ordinarily covered by water that is flooded during extreme storm events.

To learn more about CH’s East Burlington Creeks Flood Hazard Mapping Study and updated draft flood hazard mapping, we are inviting the public to join us for a virtual public engagement session on June 6, 2023 at 7:00pm.

This is an opportunity for those looking for further information to learn more and ask questions.

For information for the virtual public engagement session, please visit Conservation Halton Mapping and Studies and click on “East Burlington Creeks Flood Hazard Mapping Study”. If you would like register for the meeting, please register here. Draft mapping and reports, as well as a recording of the public engagement session, will be available online for comment until July 6, 2023.

After the public engagement session and 30-day public review period, CH will review all feedback received and make any necessary revisions to the draft flood hazard mapping. It is anticipated that the final draft mapping and study will be presented to CH’s Board of Directors for their approval and inclusion in CH’s online Approximate Regulation Limit (ARL) mapping later this year.

Should you have any questions about the study or upcoming Public Engagement Session #2, please contact CH via email at or call (905) 336-1158 ext. 2296.
