Oldcastle Stormwater Master Plan

The Town of Tecumseh initiated a Stormwater Master Plan for the Oldcastle Hamlet. The Stormwater Master Plan includes a capacity review of the current storm sewer system and drains in consideration of both current and future development. This study was conducted in accordance with the requirements of Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) which is an approved process under the Environmental Assessment Act.

This study was funded in part through the National Disaster Mitigation Program (NDMP) which is a federal program that provides funding support for flood mitigation projects. The Government of Canada administers the NDMP and provides NDMP funding to the Provincial and Territorial governments who may redistribute funding to eligible entities such as the Town of Tecumseh. In Ontario, the NDMP is administered by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing.

Please note: Views expressed on the Town's website are the views of the Town of Tecumseh and do not necessarily reflect those of the Province and the Government of Canada.

The first Public Information Center (PIC) was held on Thursday, October 17, 2019 to obtain feedback from local residents, property owners and community groups. A second PIC was held Wednesday, January 29, 2020 providing interested parties an opportunity to review design alternatives and provide comment.
