Property owners and residents of the CSRD are responsible for all measures required for flood protection of private property.
General flooding can occur when water levels in lakes, creeks or rivers as a result of heavy snow melt, run-off or rain, typically in the spring or early summer. Flash floods can result from exceptional weather events that may occur any time of the year. Ensuring that all culverts and discharge passages are kept clean and free of obstructions is the best defense against flash floods. If you notice a problem with a culvert, please report this to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.
