tilbury stormwater study area.JPGEcosystem Recovery Inc. has been retained by the Municipality to provide engineering services to assist in completing this study.

A Community Café was held on September 17, 2019 to commence the study. During the Community Café the project team received extensive input on flooding issues in Tilbury from residents.

Using the public input from the Community Café, the project team has assessed the extent and severity of flooding in Tilbury and developed a set of feasible and practical design alternatives to reduce flooding. The next phase of the study is to determine the preferred alternative and develop the short-term and long-term implementation strategy. This is achieved by evaluating the environmental, social and economical impacts of each design alternative.

The Municipality held a Public Information Centre (PIC) on February 12, 2020 to present the design alternatives to the public and obtain feedback on each alternative. This feedback will be used to complete the evaluation process and determine the preferred alternative.

Ecosystem Recovery Inc. and Municipality staff reviewed a short presentation to present the project, the technical studies completed to date and the list of design alternatives considered to reduce flooding in Tilbury. After the presentation the project team will broke into four groups. Each group will focus on a specific area of Tilbury and the design alternatives presented for that area. Residents and stakeholders will be encouraged to provide comments on each alternative. These comments will be used in the alternative assessment and the identification of the preferred alternative. Presentation can be found by clicking here.
