FLOOD MAP­PING UPDATE

Vision (Canada) - - ACTUALITÉS - NEWS -

The Uni­ted Coun­ties of Pres­cott-Rus­sell (UCPR) wants to update the flood maps for the re­gion along the Ot­ta­wa Ri­ver. The cur­rent maps date back to the late 1990s and last year’s flood pro­blems in Ro­ck­land, L’Ori­gnal, and other areas along the ri­ver pro­ved more ac­cu­rate maps are nee­ded. A de­le­ga­tion from the UCPR and the South Na­tion Con­ser­va­tion Au­tho­ri­ty (SNC) met with pro­vin­cial go­vern­ment of­fi­cials on the sub­ject du­ring the recent As­so­cia­tion of Mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ties of On­ta­rio confe­rence in Ot­ta­wa. There were no pro­mises made for fun­ding aid but pro­vin­cial of­fi­cials said they would look in­to the mat­ter. – Gregg Cham­ber­lain
