The Grand River Conservation Authority (GRCA), in partnership with the Township of Woolwich, is holding a public meeting in West Montrose to share information regarding the record rainfall that occurred on June 23, 2017, and the flooding that resulted from the event.

The meeting will take place on Monday, July 24, 2017 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at West Montrose United Church (42 Covered Bridge Drive).

The meeting will begin with a presentation by GRCA Director of Engineering, Dwight Boyd. Following the presentation, GRCA & municipal staff will be on-hand to answer questions and speak with residents. The meeting will be chaired by Township of Woolwich Mayor Sandy Shantz.

“We are looking forward to meeting with the community and the residents that were impacted by this significant event,” says Dwight Boyd. “We appreciate the opportunity to share information about what took place, what we’ve learned so far through our analysis of the data we have, and how we can all work together to try and prevent the impact of flooding in West Montrose in the future.”

The presentation will outline some suggestions for future improvements. Residents will be asked to provide their input on the suggestions brought forward.
