The City of Windsor will be conducting a flood risk study and getting a federal grant to help pay for it.
Windsor is receiving $125,000 from Ottawa to study Riverside, East Riverside, and Lake St. Clair.
The city will be getting answers to the vulnerability of the city’s drainage system to variability in climate conditions and rainfall.
The study will focus on the flood risks to an area of land along Riverside Drive, and inland, which is 6 kilometers long and includes 7,481 land parcels and the city’s Little River Pollution Control Plant.
The area is at risk of surface flooding due to alterations to the Riverside dike system since its installation in the 1980’s.
It is also getting another $125,000 for an integrated site energy plan for two wastewater treatment plants.
