The Town of Tecumseh has retained Zuzek Inc., and their sub-consultants SJL Engineering Inc., Dillon Consulting and Foresight Management Consulting, to complete a Shoreline Management Plan that will assess the Town’s existing and future vulnerability to lake flooding and to develop appropriate mitigation strategies that will account for the influence of coastal storms and climate change. The study area includes the Lake St. Clair shoreline of Tecumseh and Pike Creek.
This investigation will study existing coastal hazards and determine existing shoreline areas that are vulnerable to the threat of lake flooding. The investigation will also study the potential influence of climate change on future coastal hazards due to changes in storms, rainfall, and ice cover and the associated challenges for the community of Tecumseh. Updated floodplain mapping will be generated, along with conceptual adaptation options to address the coastal hazards. The ultimate goal is to increase the resilience of the Town of Tecumseh to coastal hazards through the development of short- and long-term solutions.
