Extreme weather makes the news frequently. Locally, South Nation Conservation (SNC) reduces risk to life and damage to property by providing municipalities and residents with advance notice of potential flooding.
Flood forecasting responds to weather events experienced in a watershed and compares them over time. Flood forecasting and warning is also an important response to intense precipitation events.
In addition to flood forecasting, SNC is currently updating and improving floodplain and slope-stability maps for the City of Ottawa contained within SNC’s jurisdiction.
