About the Plan:
The Sewer and Coastal Flood Protection Master Plan is a key element of the 8-Point Plan released by Mayor Drew Dilkens in response to the significant rainfall events in 2016 and 2017 that resulted in flooding in and around the homes of thousands of Windsor residents. The plan will confirm the areas that are vulnerable to flooding; identify reasons for the flooding; generate and evaluate short and long-term alternative solutions; and develop a long-range implementation strategy to manage flooding in the City.
