Residents attend meeting to address flooding concerns in Hagensborg

Residents attend meeting to address flooding concerns in Hagensborg

Facing wild wet windy conditions, on the evening of Tuesday 14 January, approximately 40 residents from Hagensborg braved the elements to attend a discussion evening on a developing “shelf ready” engineering design plan for flood protection in Hagensborg.

The meeting hosted by the Central Coast Regional District and Northwest Hydraulic Consultants is one component to the engineering design project funded by Emergency Management BC, following the 2010 floods that impacted Hagensborg.

Despite the complexity of historical and current risks and challenges associated with addressing flooding in Hagensborg, the information presented was both informative and easy to understand.

Overall feedback received from the meeting indicated the design plan accurately identified challenges facing the Hagensborg community and moves in the right direction toward “being prepared” and potentially addressing the serious future flooding risk in the Hagensborg area.

Valuable contributions from attending residents will help to firm up recommendations as part of the Northwest Hydraulic Consultants final report for the project.  It is anticipated the “shelf ready” report will go to the Central Coast Regional District Board meeting Thursday March 13, 2014, for discussion and decision on next steps. For more information contact Ken McIlwain, Public Works Manager on 250-799-5291.
