WHY: Flood Risk Mapping in the City of Ottawa Draft Mapping for Poole Creek and Feedmill Creek
The Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) has just completed draft floodplain mapping along Poole and Feedmill Creeks in the City of Ottawa. The project has identified flood prone areas. The public are encouraged to attend the open house and/or provide comments on the draft mapping completed for Poole and Feedmill Creeks. The draft mapping and regulation mapping studies are available online at http://www.mvc.on.ca/floodplain-mapping-ottawa/.
Identifying lands that are vulnerable to flooding is an important responsibility for Ontario’s Conservation Authorities. In 2013, MVCA completed the first phase of a five year undertaking of flood risk mapping studies on watercourses within the City of Ottawa. Conservation Authorities use the mapping in the administration of hazardous lands.
