The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority is starting the process of updating floodplain mapping for Beaver Creek in the Township of West Lincoln and Big Forks Creek in the Township of Wainfleet.

An important part of this process is engaging our community, particularly those who live in the vicinity of these creeks. We have established an improved approach and are pleased to be engaging the community before any engineering work is carried out.

This portal will house important documents that all are welcome to review, a project timeline which outlines the process for updating the floodplains, and frequently asked questions.

Due to COVID-19, the first information session on September 8 was offered virtually. A second information session will take place in the spring to share an update on the project, and a third session will be hosted in the fall of 2022 to review NPCA Floodplain Mapping policies and share the final results of the project.
