LOISS Assessment of Coastal Engineering Structures (GHD 2015)

The LOISS recommnded an assessment of structures on public land owned or managed by CVC. The study consists of the following components:
• Development of an inventory of the shoreline protection structures;
• Assessment of the condition and effectiveness of the structures;
• Recommendations of opportunities for replacement or conversion of shoreline structures
• with the goal of shoreline naturalization; and,
• Recommendations for long term monitoring of the structures.

LOISS Moore Creek Fluvial Geomorphology

This report responds to a recommendation from LOISS to gain insight into the interaction of the watercourses and Lake Ontario, to identify watercourses most sensitive to backwater from the lake, and to identify watercourses providing the highest sediment inputs to the shoreline. Since Moore Creek is contained within private property of the Lorne Park Estates and access permission had not been established, this creek was not assessed during the LOISS study. The fluvial geomorphic assessment of Moore Creek was consequently identified as a data gap. CVC was subsequently granted access to Moore Creek and retained Aquafor to undertake this study to complement the LOISS dataset.
