County flood modelling viewer available online

The County’s geographic information systems (GIS) tool showing areas potentially vulnerable to flooding is now available online.

The tool, which was used at the recent flood preparation open house, maps areas potentially at risk of flooding (for information purposes only).

Follow this link to access the tool. 

An online instructional video is available to assist with using the tool. 

Providing the location-specific information is one way the municipality is helping residents prepare for potential flooding this spring with Lake Ontario experiencing near record-high water levels for this time of year.

If you live or operate a business in a vulnerable area, you are encouraged to start preparing. A list of flood prevention products and services is also posted on The County’s flood watch webpage.

The municipality is currently preparing its response in the event of flooding. The Emergency Control Group is meeting on a regular basis to monitor the situation and put plans in place. Regular updates will be provided on the County flood watch web page and social media channels (Facebook and Twitter). You can also sign up for email updates by emailing communications@pecounty.on.ca.
