Request for Input

Survey of residents and businesses at risk of flooding in New Hamburg

The Grand River Conservation Authority (GRCA) is seeking input from New Hamburg residents and businesses to support the New Hamburg Flood Mitigation Study. The objectives of the study are to update flood mapping, estimate annual average flood damage costs, identify potential options to reduce flood damages, and complete a preliminary technical feasibility and cost-benefit analysis of the options.

Information about the characteristics of buildings in at-risk areas (e.g., whether basements are finished), types of flooding residents have experienced (river-related or sewer back-up), and damages and costs associated with floods, will provide valuable context for the study.

GRCA and Township of Wilmot staff will be dropping off surveys at residences and businesses in those areas of the town affected by flooding from the Nith River by December 2, 2019.

The study’s findings will support possible future applications for external funding to assist with the cost of implementing any potential flood risk mitigation options in New Hamburg. More information is available at is distributed twice weekly; Tuesday and Thursday
