Howard/Bouffard Master Drainage Study

Update April 26, 2021

The Howard Bouffard Master Drainage Study is currently on hold and paused for the time being.  Formal Notice of this pause has been mailed out to the various stakeholders as part of the study.  Once this study resumes, notices will be sent out to all stakeholders and this website will be further updated.

The Howard/Bouffard Master Drainage Study will provide for a long term solution to the drainage for existing and developed conditions in the Howard/Bouffard planning area.

The Town engaged the services of Dillon Consulting in July 2018 to complete this study.  This study involves the Town and the Essex Region Conservation Authority.  The purpose of the study is to identify the existing drainage conditions in the Howard/Bouffard planning area and how development will occur in this area so that storm drainage will be conveyed to appropriate outlets.

As the study progresses, the Town will engage with residents, stakeholders and the public to shape the overall master drainage study and contribute towards the preferred solutions and recommendation identified in the plan.
