NOTICE OF FILING OF DOCUMENT FOR REVIEW CARP CREEK EMBANKMENT RESTORATION CLASS ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT
The Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) has retained McIntosh Perry Consulting Engineers to complete a study regarding the Carp Creek Embankment Restoration located within Glen Cairn community between Terry Fox Drive and Eagleson Road. This project is being considered in order to provide protection to the Carp Creek embankment which is currently unstable due to severe erosion occurring primarily along the southeast embankment. This study has been initiated to solely address embankment erosion within the study area limits and will not address and/or rectify any recent flooding issues.
A Project Plan Report has been prepared in accordance with the Class Environmental Assessment for Remedial Flood and Erosion Control Projects, approved for projects of this type. As described in the Project Plan Report, MVCA, in cooperation with the City of Ottawa, is proposing to partially realign a portion of Carp Creek and place a live crib wall along the south embankment. Plantings and rip-rap will also be strategically placed to protect the top of banks and transition points along the creek. The Technically Preferred Alternative (TPA) will eliminate/reduce erosion of the embankment within the study area, which will help prevent the deposition of high levels of sediment into the tributary, as well as the erosion eventually extending into green space along Carp Creek which is situated immediately adjacent to residential properties and recreational facilities. Interested persons are invited to review this document on the Conservation Authority’s website at: http://mvc.on.ca or at the Conservation Authority office, 10970 Highway 7, Carleton Place.
