Province Announces Funding To Help Reduce Flooding
The Regional Municipality is getting some money from the province to help reduce the risk of flooding in Sydney’s Wash Brook area.
217,500 dollars are being put toward containment and flood intensity mitigation.
The money comes through the province’s Flood Risk Infrastructure Investment Program, along with other flood control funding announced today for Queens and Kings Counties and West Hants.
The money given to the Regional Municipality is only a fraction of the millions of dollars a consultant says is needed.
CBCL outlined a number of flood control options to Regional Council last month, with the total cost of all of the options coming to about 24 million.
The consultants also say even that amount of money will not totally fix the problem.
