Stormwater Management Master Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Town of Halton Hills recently completed the Stormwater Management (SWM) Strategy which has led to the Town undertaking a Stormwater Management Master Plan.

As the Town grows, the way in which precipitation run-off can move through the landscape becomes more important and challenging. Stormwater systems exist throughout our community to maneuver rainfall and other collected water to collection basins and away from our residences.

Over time, there have been many changes and advances in the progression of SWM practices to address both minor and major drainage systems. The Town will be evaluating the existing SWM system and making recommendations to bring the storm infrastructure up-to-date to prepare for the anticipated impacts of climate change.

There have been an increasing number of locally extreme rainfall events with much higher intensities than those seen in the past, earlier snowmelt, and increased flood risks which pose challenges to the existing infrastructure.

The Town is seeking input from the public and key stakeholders to help guide the SWM Master Plan.
