Technical Study Requirements

Once the constraints on a property have been identified, detailed study may be required. Any technical study requirements would be identified in consultation with the CA reviewing the proposal. The following supporting technical study requirements may be required to assess the impact of the project. As outlined in Section 28 (1)(b) and (c) of the Conservation Authorities Act, the purpose of these studies is to demonstrate the impact of the proposed development with respect to control of flooding, erosion, dynamic beaches and pollution, and to assess interference to wetlands and watercourses. The studies required will be determined and scope through the preconsultation based on the location of the site, site characteristics and complexity of the proposed works.
