Dealing with floods
There are a number of shoreline and low-lying areas in Haldimand County that are at risk of flooding. While there are limits to what can be done to prevent flooding, there are steps that property owners can take to manage the risks that floods pose to people and properties.
Haldimand County works with three conservation authorities to warn residents about floods and to help keep people safe when flooding occurs. Floods can occur at any time of year. The impacted areas are not only at risk from extreme rainfall events, but are also vulnerable to high winds and wave action causing erosion and property damage.
This online guide provides key information for property owners who live in flood-prone areas including: how to prepare for a flood, what to do during & after a flood, important contacts & other helpful resources.
