The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority is starting the process of updating floodplain mapping for Beaver Creek in the Township of West Lincoln and Big Forks Creek in the Township of Wainfleet
The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority is starting the process of updating floodplain mapping for Beaver Creek in the Township of West Lincoln and Big Forks Creek in the Township of Wainfleet and Haldimand.
An important part of this process is engaging our community, particularly those who live in the vicinity of these creeks. The NPCA established an improved approach and are pleased to be engaging the community before any engineering work is carried out.
The NPCA’s engagement portal will house important documents that all are welcome to review, a project timeline which outlines the process for updating the floodplains, and frequently asked questions.
Due to COVID-19, the first information session on September 8 will be offered virtually. Please note a second information session will take place in the spring to share an update on the project, and a third session will be hosted in the fall of 2022 to review NPCA Floodplain Mapping policies and share the final results of the project.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED & PARTICIPATE:
1. Register to attend the Virtual Information Session on Sept. 8 to participate in these discussions.
2. If unable to attend, please check back on this portal as you will have the ability to watch the presentation and submit comments or questions.
3. Email written comment to Steve Miller, Senior Manager of Water Resources, at email@example.com
4. Mail in your written comment to NPCA head office at 250 Thorold Rd 3rd Floor, Welland, ON L3C 3W2
A Q&A tool will be available starting September 9. Members of the community are welcome to watch the information session video and provide feedback, comment, or questions using this tool. Questions may be answered publicly or privately depending on the nature of the inquiry.
