The City of Calgary – Preparing for flood season
With a higher-than-average snowpack, overland flooding affecting several Alberta communities and the five-year anniversary of the 2013 Southern Alberta flood, we know that river flooding is top-of-mind for Calgarians. It is our priority at the City of Calgary to monitor, manage and reduce flood risk, and to ensure citizens understand their risk and have the resources available to prepare.
River flooding impacts all Calgarians who live, work, commute or recreate in the city centre or along the Bow and Elbow Rivers. River flooding is most likely to occur between May 15 and July 15. We actively monitor river, weather and snow pack conditions to prepare for potential flooding. It is important to note that:
Since 2013, together with the Province, we have committed more than $150 million towards projects that will reduce our risk of river flood damage. We have also strengthened our understanding of the flow of the Bow and Elbow Rivers, how rivers change, flood modelling, forecasting, preparedness and response.
While we are working to reduce our risk of river flood damage, we cannot eliminate the risk of flooding entirely. Citizens have a critical role to play in preparing for river flooding.
The Federation of Calgary Communities has provided an update about the report on secondary suites that will be discussed at the March 12 meeting of the Calgary City Council. You can view it after the jump. Continue reading
