In addition to flood forecasting, SNC is currently updating and improving floodplain and slope-stability maps for the City of Ottawa contained within SNC jurisdiction.
This year’s focus has included the areas of Devine Creek from the Forced Road and Rockdale Road intersection to the Russland Road and Rockdale intersection; Marshall Seguin Creek from the intersection of Devine Road and Rockdale Road to Rockdale Road at Highway 417; and Nelson Charlebois Creek from the Trim Road and Giroux Street intersection to the Prescott and Russell Trail on Frank Kenny Road.
SNC invites local residents to attend a public open house to view and comment on new natural hazard maps for their area within the City of Ottawa. The open house will take place on Thursday, February 8, 2018 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at École élémentaire catholique Saint-Guillaume in Vars, ON.
SNC staff will be on-hand at the public house to respond to any questions from property owners and residents.
