Media notes that new report says flood plans in B.C. are out of date  

Salmon Arm’s‬ initial report was received on Nov 2nd at our D&PSC session (Item 6.1 )   http://www.salmonarm.ca/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Agenda/11022015-241

More to certainly come on this – Council received the report this morning that sets out how to request a full Flood Plain Hazard and Risk Assessment report.

Major Price Sticker shock, serious implications and lots of discussion and input on the horizon  given currently outdated data, improved but costly modelling and technology available and the professionally recognized imperative to factor in climate change.

Check it out and stay tuned.
