Notice of Commencement: LPRCA Flood Hazard Mapping & Risk Assessment

The Project

The Long Point Region Conservation Authority (LRPCA) is updating and creating new flood hazard mapping for approximately 91 kilometres of watercourses within its jurisdiction. The LRPCA is focusing this work on the most flood vulnerable communities within its watershed, with financial support from the National Disaster Mitigation Program. Accurate floodplain mapping is critical to minimizing the risk to life and property, supporting flood emergency response, planning for long-term mitigation measures, and supporting land use and development planning.

This Project will provide updated flood hazard mapping for the subject areas, as well as a risk assessment for the flood hazard mapping areas, at-risk structures and infrastructure, and associated flood damage potential.

Community Engagement

Engagement with the public is a critical component of this Project and will include two sessions of Public Information Centres (PICs). Each session will occur at three locations within the study area in collaboration with the local municipalities. The first session will provide the public with the opportunity to review the preliminary flood hazard mapping and provide insight into local conditions and flooding history. The second session will present the updated flood hazard mapping and associated risk assessment.
