2020 Regional Flood Map Study
In the summer of 2019, the RDCK undertook region wide assessments to update existing flood mapping. Salmo contributed a $150,000 grant from UBCM to this project. The work focused on high priority areas identified during a 2018-2019 regional study that prioritized flood and steep creek hazard areas across the District (BGC, March 31, 2019). The assessment objectives for each study area included the completion of detailed hazard assessments including data compilation, fieldwork and analysis and preparation of hazard maps and reports for each study area. Through the provision of detailed hazard maps and information, the Stream 2 study supports community planning, bylaw enforcement, emergency response, risk control, and asset management. All reports are available for download here on the RDCK website.
