Long Point Region Conservation Authority Flood Hazard Mapping and Risk Assessment

Long Point Region Conservation Authority (LPRCA) has initiated a project to update and create new flood hazard mapping focused on flood-vulnerable communities within its watershed. Accurate floodplain mapping is required to support land use planning and permitting decisions, flood-related emergency response and mitigation planning in at-risk communities. This project will also update municipal risk assessment information for flood hazard mapping, inventorying at-risk infrastructure and estimating damage potential. The project will be completed by early 2020.

To share project information and receive public feedback, LPRCA will be hosting Public Information Centres (PICs) in several locations across the study area. Two rounds of PICs will be held, with the first set of sessions scheduled at the following locations:

The scope of this project is limited to updating the hazard mapping using current technology and resources. Updates to policies and plans are not included in the scope of this project.
