Coastal Flood Risk Assessment Study Community Sessions
Coastal flooding during storms has been a recurring issue along the Minas Shore, putting our coastal property and public infrastructure at risk. Residents have expressed concern about flooding on Highway 215, the Avondale Wharf, Cheverie Crossway and Salt Marsh Restoration Trail, Avondale and Belmont Roads, and access to public assets such as schools and fire stations.
The Municipality has hired consultants to perform a Coastal Flood Risk Assessment Study to better understand the risk of flooding along the shoreline from Avondale to Cheverie and the potential impact of sea level rise.
The Coastal Flood Risk Assessment Study will identify infrastructure and property at potential risk of damage as well as options to reduce risk for the future. The Study will include the following: • community and property owner consultation • review of historical storm and flooding data • modelling of extreme water levels • identification of property and infrastructure at risk • identification of future options, cost estimates and priorities
We are providing two ways for residents to participate in the Study: 1. Attend one of the Community Information Sessions being held on November 24.
