Flood Mitigation and Resiliency

Through ongoing research, planning and work, the City has identified the four major risk areas that continue to create many of the impacts associated with flooding.  They include:

  • Key Transportation Infrastructure
  • Municipal Infrastructure 
  • Local Watershed Resilience
  • Property Flood Risk Mitigation

Further to two community conversations held in late summer related to flood mitigation and resiliency, the City of Fredericton has released an engagement report to share and respond to the concerns and ideas expressed by residents.

​The City had invited people to talk about how the floods of 2018 and 2019 had affected them and to make suggestions to mitigate the effects of future floods. Many answered the call, by sharing their concerns and ideas with the heads of the City’s Engineering & Operations and Planning & Development departments, as well as representatives from Fredericton’s Municipal Emergency Measures Organization.

Presenters at the July 30 and August 15 public sessions included residents whose homes had been flooded, business owners, environmental advocates, insurance industry representatives, and academics.
