LAKE ERIE NORTH SHORE

LAKE ERIE NORTH SHORE WATERSHED PLAN Other water-related hazards mean water-associated phenomena other than flooding hazards and wave uprush which act on shorelines. This includes, but is not limited to ship-generated waves, ice piling and ice jamming. Erosion hazard limit: determined using considerations that include the 100 year erosion rate (the average annually rate of recession extended over a 100 year time span), an allowance for slope stability, and an erosion/erosion access allowance. Dynamic Beach hazard limit: consists of the flooding hazard limit plus a dynamic beach allowance [30m dynamic beach horizontal setback (MNR 2001)]. The dynamic beach hazard policy is generally “not applied where beach or dune deposits overlying bedrock are generally less than 0.3 meters in thickness, 10 meters in width or extend for less than 100 meters along the shoreline” (NPCA 2007b). Conservation Authorities are the governing body responsible for hazard lands in Ontario. Hazardous land, as defined in the Conservation Authorities Act [Section 28 (25)], is “land that could be unsafe for development because of naturally occurring processes associated with flooding, erosion, dynamic beaches or unstable soil or bedrock.” Accordingly, under the Planning Act (MMAH 1990), the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority is delegated provincial responsibility for reviewing natural hazard lands for respective municipalities on any proposed development within the NPCA jurisdiction. The NPCA has a Memorandum of Understanding with regional and local municipalities whereby all water-related issues be reviewed by the NPCA. Comments provided by the NPCA outline implications of development proposals from a watershed perspective pertaining to natural hazard planning, natural heritage planning, or groundwater and surface water management [NPCA 2007b (Section 4.0)]. These comments not only reflect the goals and the objectives of the NPCA under the Conservation Authorities Act in terms of “a program designed to further the conservation, restoration, development and management of natural resources other than gas, oil, coal and minerals” (R.S.O. 1990, c. C.27, s. 20.), but also reflect the requirements of Niagara Region‟s and Haldimand County‟s environmental policies. The policies for NPCA‟s regulated areas are administered under the Ontario Regulation 155/06: Development, Interference with Wetlands and Alteration to Watercourse Regulation. The policies apply to all “watercourses, floodplains, valleylands, hazardous lands, wetlands, the shoreline of Lake Ontario, Lake Erie and the Niagara River, and 46
