Shoreline Risk Study

Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority (CLOCA) recently completed the Lake Ontario Shoreline Hazard Management Plan (Zuzek, 2020) which provided updated flood and erosion hazard mapping for CLOCA’s 30-kilometer-long shoreline. Seven shoreline communities were identified where one or more residential buildings fall within lands susceptible to natural hazards. These areas are referred to as Shoreline Damage Centres.

To better understand and quantify the risks associated with these hazards and to identify potential mitigation solutions to eliminate or reduce the risks, CLOCA has retained SJL Engineering (Terms of Reference) to complete a Lake Ontario Shoreline Hazard Summary, Risk Assessment and Management Plan for each of these seven communities.


The project will identify all applicable hazards, assess the risks associated with these hazards, and develop a risk management plan for each shoreline community. 

 

The Port Darlington Shoreline Damage Centre has been extensively studied with respect to identifying existing hazards, risk levels and proposed mitigation/ management plans. As such, this area will not be further studied. Rather, the final report will simply summarize the work completed to date for this area. Hazard risk mapping will, however, be produced to provide consistency with the remaining damage centres. 

 

Funding for this study has been secured through the Regional Municipality of Durham with matching funding from the federal National Disaster Mitigation Program.
