Using 2D modelling to refine floodplain maps and support flood mitigation planning
The city of Mississauga has recently identified strategic growth areas where
investments will be targeted for redevelopment and intensification projects. One
of the growth areas has a history of flooding during major storm events. In
order to redevelop this area, businesses and land owners need to prepare
development proposals ensuring that appropriate flood proofing requirements
have been achieved and emergency management plans have been prepared.
Although the area had previously been included in an update to the regulatory
floodplain mapping, the one-dimensional (1D) model that was used to map the
floodplain was not capable of representing the complex overland flow within the
study area. Therefore, it was determined that a more detailed two-dimensional
(2D) hydraulic model was required to refine the floodplain mapping for this
area. The team of DHI and MMM Group—a community planning and
infrastructure design consultancy— were selected to take on this challenge.
