Public Information Session: Oswego Creek Floodplain Mapping (Feb 15)

The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority is in the process of updating floodplain mapping for Oswego Creek in Haldimand County and portions of Wainfleet. An important part of this process is engaging our community, particularly those who live in the vicinity of the creek.

The project began in April 2023 and NPCA has since then hosted two information sessions to receive input from the community.

Residents are once again invited to attend a third information session on February 15, where staff and engineering teams will present the proposed draft maps for both creeks and obtain additional feedback.
