Share Your Feedback on Flooding

There is still time to participate in the Floodplain Committee’s online survey on the Township’s updated Flood Mitigation Plan.

Your input will help the committee rank the plan’s priorities and understand the community’s experiences with flooding. The committee will finalize the updated plan with survey responses and present it to the Township Board for consideration later this year.

The plan seeks to protect the community’s health and safety, focusing on areas of the Township that are at a high risk of flooding each year. It also serves as a guide for Township staff to mitigate, support and assist stakeholders in these areas.

Much of the survey will focus on flood education, prevention and public safety. This includes flood-proofing techniques, proper home elevation, reducing flood insurance premiums for property owners, installing a river gauge to provide early flood warnings and infrastructure improvements.
