Cooksville Creek Two-Zone Floodplain Study

Consulate Management Ltd. retained the services of Crozier & Associates to undertake a Two-Zone Floodplain Study of Cooksville Creek in support of applications for a proposed high density residential development.

Cooksville Creek has been the subject of numerous studies and reports for the past 40 years, primarily because of intense urbanization of the watershed. This has resulted in an overly responsive watershed, characterized by frequent, flash rainfall runoff events.

Consulate Management Ltd. proposed an infill project consisting of residential high-rise buildings located on Camilla Road immediately north of the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) highway. The site is located within the floodplain of Cooksville Creek. Crozier & Associates successfully completed the requisite Two-Zone Floodplain Study in 2013 securing technical approval from the Credit Valley Conservation (CVC). The study involved a complex sensitivity analysis of floodplain encroachment scenarios and hydraulic impact per Provincial Policy Statement on Natural Hazards (MNR, 2005) and the work plan established by the City and CVC.

Crozier & Associates effectively resolved these complex technical issues related to the Two-Zone area which had previously been left unresolved despite numerous attempts by others over the past ten years.
