HDR The W. Darcy McKeough Floodway is the largest flood diversion project in Ontario. The floodway was completed in 1984 to reduce the threat of flooding in the Town of Wallaceburg. The floodway is situated approximately twelve kilometres north of Wallaceburg in Sombra Township. It consists of an earth fill dam embankment and concrete control structure housing two vertical sluice gates. The grass lined diversion channel stretches seven kilometres west to the St. Clair River. Near the channel outlet, a concrete drop structure reduces the energy of the diverted flood waters before entering the St. Clair River.
