AbstractThe Lakeview Waterfront Connection (LWC) project seeks to create a new natural park that will establish ecological habitat and public linkages on the eastern Mississauga waterfront of Lake Ontario through the innovative use of clean fill from regional infrastructure upgrades. This paper describes a 1:35 scale physical modelling study that was commissioned to investigate the interaction of moderate and extreme waves with the proposed LWC conceptual design, to help optimize the design of the project including the beach fill and the rubble-mound structures, and verify the stability and response of the headland-beach system under a range of design conditions, including storms approaching from easterly and southerly directions, at average and high lake levels.
