Sixteen Mile Creek Diversion Channel

Town of Oakville

Size: 870 m | Completion: 2016 | Location: Oakville, ON

Civil Engineering

In 2011, WalterFedy’s civil engineers prepared a watershed study for a diversion channel for the Glen Oak and Sixteen Mile Creek watersheds. This study was part of a larger overall watershed drainage area land swap for the area north of Dundas Street in the Town of Oakville, completed as part of the design works for the Oakville Hospital.

In order to design the 870m diversion channel, our engineers determined the contributing areas and modeled stormwater flows for all major storms and on a continuous basis using a 60 year data set. Further contributions included the fluvial geomorphology and landscaping of the channel. 

This project necessitated significant consultation with the Town of Oakville and Conservation Halton in order to ensure all requirements were met throughout design and construction.
