In 2004, the Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority (CLOCA) undertook a Shoreline Hazards Damage Centre Study of the western end of the Port Darlington shoreline. The 2004 study identified shoreline hazards (flooding, erosion and dynamic beach) and made recommendations to address these issues. The 2004 Report was prepared by Aqua Solutions but was never finalized. As a result of recent flooding and erosion concerns, and in response in particular to a request by Cedar Crest Beach Road residents to have Clarington assist in developing and implementing a comprehensive unified shoreline erosion mitigation plan for the area bounded by 37 and 155 Cedar Crest Beach Road, the 2004 Draft Study is being revisited by CLOCA and the Municipality of Clarington. The 2018 Port Darlington Shoreline & Flood Damage Centre Study will not only revive the 2004 study but it will also include an assessment of potential erosion mitigation measures.
Aqua Solutions has been retained to complete the 2018 Port Darlington Shoreline Study. Aqua Solutions will be finalizing the shoreline study and on behalf of CLOCA, is interested in hearing from those who are affected by flooding and erosion along the shoreline. This survey is an opportunity for concerned individuals and organizations to share their views and offer their thoughts about the shoreline issues and solutions.
