Flooding focus of open house

DRAYTON - Residents of Drayton and Mapleton can learn more about flooding at a public open house being hosted by the GRCA and the township on March 23.

“We want to give people in Drayton helpful information about where we usually see flooding and how they will be notified when flooding is expected,” says Naomi Moore, the GRCA’s water resources project coordinator.

“While this will be of interest to people within Drayton, other residents of Mapleton who live in flood-prone areas will also find good information at this open house. It’s a great opportunity to ask questions to representatives from several organizations.”

Flooding along the Conestogo River occurs in Drayton and some other areas within Mapleton Township. The open house will explain the flood warning system, how to reduce the risks to property and what to do after a flood. It will include displays on flooding, new maps showing flood warning levels in Drayton and other information.

The open house takes place at the PMD arena, 68 Main Street West in Drayton, from 4:30 to 7pm. Representatives of several organizations will be on hand to answer questions, including:

- Township of Mapleton emergency responders and planners and the community emergency management co-ordinator;

- Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management;

- Insurance Bureau of Canada;

- Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health unit; and

- GRCA engineering and planning

 A brochure called Preparing for Flooding: a Guide for Residents of Drayton will be available at the meeting. Resources, including this brochure, are posted on the GRCA’s website at
