EPCOR Releases Citizen Survey Results on Flood Mitigation Priorities

Posted on Oct 28, 2018 in Modelling and Calculators, Guidance Documents , Flooding

As part of its Stormwater Integrated Resource Plan, EPCOR has released the results of its public survey on citizen priorities for protecting against floods. Citizens were asked to consider possible impacts in four categories: 

  • Health and Safety
  • Environment
  • Social
  • Financial

EPCOR "...will continue to enhance the overall risk framework analysis through the continued enhancement of the information contained in the different data sets supporting the risk analysis. The public engagement survey results will continue to be referenced through the process of identifying mitigation initiatives to ensure the solutions address the flooding impacts important to citizens. The solutions that will be reviewed will include a mix of grey and green infrastructure components installed within the public right-of-way or within City- or EPCOR-owned parcels. EPCOR will also review the potential for increased flood proofing on private property to reduce the exposure to sanitary surcharge and overland flooding risks. Operational maintenance programs and monitoring programs will also be considered to provide additional mitigation prior to the installation of physical flood mitigation options."

Review the results on the EPCOR flood mitigation webpage.
