Flood hazard identification program [fact sheet]

Description

Flood hazard studies and mapping have been produced by the Government of Alberta since the 1970s. Initially there was no formal program associated with this work. In most cases, studies and mapping were provided to communities for information and planning purposes. The Canada-Alberta Flood Damage Reduction Program was initiated in 1989 between the Government of Alberta and the Government of Canada. The program was created to standardize and cost-share production of flood hazard studies and mapping, in order to increase public safety and awareness of flood hazards with an ultimate goal to mitigate flood damages. The program expired in 1999 before flood hazard studies and mapping were completed for all of the original candidate communities. AEP continues to produce studies and mapping under the separate and independent Flood Hazard Identification Program.
