What’s the City’s plan to protect your home from flooding, keep the beaches of Petrie Island clean and healthy, and protect creeks and streams from damaging storm surges? Join us at an upcoming public information session to find out. After years of work, the City has started releasing details on its flood prevention and watershed protection plan for Eastern Ottawa. Ecology Ottawa would like to invite you to a meeting to discuss the City’s plans and what they will mean for your community.

If not properly managed, stormwater can have damage property and endanger the health of creeks, streams and rivers. Outdated infrastructure paired with climate change means Blackburn Hamlet and Orléans are at growing risk of flooding, shoreline erosion, and pollution from weather-related sewage overflow events. But this situation also presents an opportunity. The City of Ottawa is now looking at infrastructure solutions to combat stormwater problems. Blackburn Hamlet and Orléans can lead the way with sustainable solutions that save money while helping safeguard the vitality of our rivers and beaches.
