Sixteen Mile Creek

Client: Amec Foster Wheeler

Sixteen Mile Creek flows from the Niagara Escarpment through the Town of Milton and City Oakville to Lake Ontario. The creek is characterized by steep banks and terraces, is home to numerous species of wildlife and is considered an environmentally sensitive area.

In 2015, Sumac was retained by Amec Foster Wheeler to provide high resolution aerial photography and 3D models of the creeks embankment. The project site was located at the world-famous Glen Abby Golf Club and focused on the Enbridge Pipeline Sixteen Mile Creek water crossing. At this site, high resolution data was required to assess a section of embankment and protective rip-rap that was showing signs of subsidence.
