Flood Mitigation Measures Assessment

The City of Calgary has developed a comprehensive suite of mitigation measures through a consultative, citizen-focused approach. Public Engagement events where held throughout 2016 to provide citizens across Calgary with a platform to share their thoughtful and informed opinions on proposed flood mitigation projects. This information was gathered and used to form recommendations which were brought to Council in March 2017.
