There's new help available to hometowns with long-term flood mitigation projects.
The provincial government's new Flood Damage Reduction Program is designed to help municipalities in their proactive planning to address emergencies before they arise.
A total of $1.5 million in funding is available this year through the program.
Project proposals are being accepted in four categories:
- Mitigation planning
- Flood plain mapping
- Hydologic and/or hydraulic investigations
Eligible projects will be cost-shared on a 50/50 basis between the Saskatchewan Water Security Agency and the community. Applications are being accepted until October 30.
