Major funding boost to enhance flood maps in Saskatchewan

The Water Security Agency (WSA) and Natural Resources Canada announced a $9 million investment to enhance flood maps for high-risk communities in Saskatchewan. Each government will contribute $4.5 million to the Flood Hazard Identification and Mapping Program (FHIMP) through 2027-28. 

 

“This program is essential to advance our aerial lidar and ground survey work in critical areas,” said Minister Responsible for the Water Security Agency David Marit. The funding will support flood emergency plans and community zoning by identifying floodplains and mitigation options. 

 

WSA will collaborate with at-risk communities, including Moose Jaw, Regina, and Estevan, to develop flood maps. “Flood maps are essential for building resiliency,” noted SUMA President Randy Goulden.
