Windsor Residents are Asked to Take Part in National Flood Survey
The City of Windsor, in partnership with a group called Partners for Action at the University of Waterloo’s Faculty of Environment and the Canadian Red Cross, is looking for information from residents that have been affected by flooding.
From now until May 15, residents are asked to visit www.floodsurvey.ca/windsor and participate in a short voluntary survey. The survey is expected to take approximately 20 minutes to complete, and participants can enter to win a $50 Tim Hortons gift card. Participants can also complete the survey over the phone by calling the City of Windsor’s 311 service.
Survey questions seek information from residents about their personal flooding experiences and if/how they are preparing in the event of another flood. It is hoped that between 500 and 1,000 Windsor residents will take part in the survey.
In addition to the residential survey, the University group will also conduct interviews with emergency and community service providers about flood preparedness and what the community needs to drive action.
The results from all surveys will contribute to the development of a national FloodSmart Canada campaign to increase risk awareness and flood mitigation action for homeowners. Information will also help inform City of Windsor initiatives, including the update to the Climate Change Adaptation Plan and the Sewer Master Plan, which will both require significant community engagement.
Sewer Master Plan
Residents are encouraged to provide their input for the City of Windsor's Sewer Master Plan. You can visit www.weatheringthestorm.ca to learn more.
Active Transportation Master Plan
The City of Windsor is undertaking an Active Transportation Master Plan and is currently asking for the community's help in identifying barriers and opportunities for Active Transportation in Windsor. Please fill out the survey and visit the Active Transportation website to learn more.
The Environmental Sustainability and Climate Change Office is committed to keeping the community of Windsor informed on environmental events, engagement opportunities, and available programs, all of which will be provided on this page.
