West Windsor Flood Assessment Study

The City of Windsor undertook a flood risk assessment study to develop a flood risk profile for the West Windsor area under extreme Detroit River water levels and to identify recommended flood protection solutions. The study area is generally bounded by the Detroit River to the west, Huron Church Road and Ambassador Bridge to the north, the Essex Terminal Railway and College Street to the east, and the Town of LaSalle municipal boundary to the south, as shown on the Project Location Map.

Project Location Map, as detailed above

A climate risk assessment was prepared using the Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC) protocol to evaluate the impacts of extreme weather and climate change on coastal flooding in the West Windsor study area. Solutions are targeted at reducing coastal flooding and inflow and infiltration (I&I) into the municipal sewer system due to extreme Detroit River water levels.
