Join us to discuss flood prevention methods in the Peoples Road area

Tuesday, May 9, 2023

The City of Sault Ste. Marie is committed to identifying potential causes and developing alternatives to mitigate significant impacts of land and basement flooding during rainfall and snowmelt. A flood mitigation study is being considered for the area of Peoples Road including Farewell Terrace to the west, Old Goulais Bay Road and Fort Creek to the east, Fourth Line to the north and Second Line to the south. While this may be of interest to people within the Peoples Road area, residents who live in flood-prone areas are welcome to attend the information session and provide feedback. 
Date: May 16, 2023
Time: 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. (come and go format)
Location: Superior Heights school cafeteria
                 750 North Street
The project is being planned under Schedule B of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process. The preliminary preferred solution includes a combination of municipal and property owner measures. Study materials will be available for public viewing including the results of an evaluation and approaches to mitigating future flooding impacts. Consultants and municipal staff will be available to discuss project details and gain input from the public.
