Howard/Bouffard Master Drainage Study

The Town of LaSalle has retained Dillon Consulting Limited to prepare a comprehensive solution to address stormwater overflow into the Howard and Bouffard Planning Area during major storm events. The study is being completed following the requirements of the Municipal Class
Environmental Assessment process for a Master Plan. It is intended that the recommended solution along with suitable stormwater management measures for the developable lands will eliminate the flooding caused by the overflow within the planning area and will allow development to proceed. This study was paused in July 2020, and has been re-started in July 2022.
