The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority is in the process of updating floodplain mapping for Beamsville Creek, Bartlett Creek, Prudhommes Creek, and six creeks in the Town of Grimsby. These floodplains were last mapped more than 25 years ago.

An important part of this process is engaging our community, particularly those who live in the vicinity of these creeks. Click here to see if your house is in the new floodplain.

This portal houses 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 two in-person information sessions that were scheduled in the spring were cancelled. Keeping the situation in mind and in an effort to protect staff and the community, these information sessions will now be offered virtually.

HOW TO PROVIDE FEEDBACK:

Please read the Floodplain Mapping Update Draft Report found on the right hand side, and send feedback by:

1. Attending the Virtual Information Sessions to provide feedback
2. If unable to attend, please check back on this portal as you will have the ability to watch the presentation and submit comments or questions (you may receive an answer publicly or privately depending on the nature of your inquiry)
3. Email written comment to Steve Miller, Senior Manager of Water Resources, at smiller@npca.ca
4. Mail in your written comment to NPCA head office at 250 Thorold Rd 3rd Floor, Welland, ON L3C 3W2

Register NOW for the Virtual Information Sessions:

Following the two virtual presentation sessions, we will open this portal for Question & Answer period, which will allow for additional participation and questions from those who were not able to attend the sessions. A link to the video will also be available.

In attendance: Professional Facilitator, Glenn Pothier – Founder and president of GLPi — a niche provider of highly strategic communication, outreach/engagement, and facilitation services focused on helping clients to operate successfully and communicate effectively in complex environments. He is a practitioner with over 25 years experience who has worked on a range of major projects, most of which involved contentious and sensitive issues — from large-scale individual environmental assessments, municipal transportation plans and related improvements, to growth management initiatives, community strategic plans, and floodplain mapping projects, among others.
