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.

    Hello, I am really not understanding what the floodplain mapping is all about. I live on Kelson avenue north, just south of the tracks. I have experienced terrible smells coming from the pond which was put in with the subdivision behind me and I do know that the water levels do get very high. Will this plan resolve both of these issues?

    G asked 5 months ago

    Hello G, thanks for your question! 

    The NPCA’s Floodplain Mapping Update project was only undertaken to determine the extent of the land that will experience flooding during the major 100-year storm event. This storm will drop approximately 4 inches of rain over a 12 hour period. 

    This study was not intended to review the operation or the issues associated with the stormwater management facility that services the Lampman Drive subdivision. We kindly suggest contacting the Town of Grimsby to relay your concerns regarding this facility.
