Graham & Wilmot Creek Flood Plain Mapping Update
The Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority (GRCA) partnered with the Municipality of Clarington to update flood plain mapping for the Graham and Wilmot Creek watersheds. Flood plain mapping helps to identify areas that may be at risk of flooding during severe storms and is an important tool for land use planning and emergency preparedness.
The study area covers the Graham and Wilmot Creek watersheds, which includes Newcastle Village, Orono, and the Hamlets of Brownsville, Leskard, Starkville, Clarke, and Newtonville. Residents can view the presentation video from the March 20th, 2023 meeting, as well as view the Mapping Interface of draft flood plain changes using the links below.
Important Notice: The 2023 draft mapping is being uploaded on March 8th, 2023. Until then, residents are welcome to familiarize themselves with the app and to view properties with the existing floodplain mapping from 1977.
