THE PROJECT: The Town of Goderich initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment 

(Class EA) process to investigate opportunities to improve stormwater management in the Goderich
Industrial Park, utilizing municipally owned lands in the vicinity of Huckins Street.
The Class EA process investigated alternative solutions to help reduce the potential
for stormwater flooding issues within the Industrial Park.
