Chedoke Creek: Disaster to Recovery


Join Ward 1 Councillor, Maureen Wilson and staff from Hamilton Water to hear about the upcoming plans for remediation of Chedoke Creek

The City of Hamilton was served a Provincial Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) Order on December 4, 2020, as a result of the Main/King Combined Sewer Overflow discharge that occurred between January 2014 and July 2018. The City of Hamilton has been working closely with the MECP and the Royal Botanical Gardens (RBG) since that time to develop a remediation workplan for both Chedoke Creek and Cootes Paradise in response to the Order. For details on the incident, the work plans and the Order visit

The Chedoke Creek Workplan outlines the scope of the targeted dredging in response to the Order to remove nutrient-laden sediment from the creek bottom. Site preparation is scheduled to begin in June/July 2022 and the in-water dredging work is required to be completed by December 31, 2022.
