PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT LAUNCH FOR THE RED DEER RIVER FLOOD STUDY
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT A TOWN OF PENHOLD ENGAGEMENT. THIS NOTICE IS ON BEHALF OF ALBERTA ENVIRONMENTS AND PARKS.
The Provincial Ministry of Environment and Parks is gathering feedback from Albertans on the Draft reports and flood maps from the Upper Red Deer River Flood Study. As Penhold residents, the Town encourages you to review the areas around Penhold.
The Town of Penhold is sharing the information as provided by Alberta Environment and Parks regarding the public engagement process for the new Red Deer River flood study. The online public engagement will remain open until January 15, 2021. The engagement is focused on the flood inundation maps that support local emergency response. We are planning future engagement opportunities on other study components for early next year, including the flood hazard maps that define floodways.
Technical expertise is not required to provide feedback. The Provincial Ministry of Environment and Parks will carefully consider all feedback and revise draft reports and flood maps to fix technical errors. They are interested in feedback on draft study hydraulic modelling and flood mapping components, including the draft flood inundation maps.
