Description

The International Lake Champlain-Richelieu River Study Board hosts a public meeting to receive public comment on its Draft Work Plan.

The Study Board appointed by the International Joint Commission undertakes the work outlined in the 2013 Plan of Study Option B, to more fully explore the causes, impacts, risks, and solutions to mitigate flooding in the Lake Champlain-Richelieu River basin.

The study’s main objectives are to:

Develop and recommend the implementation of a bi-national, real-time flood forecasting and flood inundation mapping system to prepare for and mitigate the impacts of floods.

Recommend measures - structural and non-structural - to mitigate flooding and the impact of flooding throughout the basin.

Determine public, community and stakeholder desirability of the proposed measures to mitigate flooding and the impact of flooding throughout the basin.

The public comment period begins Tuesday, June 27, 2017 and continues until Friday, July 28, 2017. Members of the public are encouraged to submit comments on the Work Plan, either online at www.participateijc.org/champlain-richelieu or by email at ChamplainRichelieu@ottawa.ijc.org. Additionally, members of the public are encouraged to attend the public meetings and chat with Study Board members.

The International Joint Commission is committed to engaging the public in the Lake Champlain-Richelieu River study on an ongoing basis through the Study Board’s Public Advisory Group (PAG). The PAG will be binational and members will represent various areas of interest and regions across the Lake Champlain-Richelieu River basin.
