We received technical feedback from the public on draft reports and flood maps from the new Fort McMurray flood study. Public engagement is part of our standard study finalization process.

The study includes detailed engineering reports and flood maps. The engineering reports are technical in nature and document the data, assumptions, and results of the hydrologic and hydraulic analyses needed to create flood maps.

The draft reports and flood maps have gone through several stages of review already, but we welcomed your feedback regarding factual errors or omissions. We were particularly interested in feedback on the hydraulic modelling and flood mapping components of the draft study, as well as the flood inundation maps themselves.

Next steps

We will carefully consider all submitted feedback. Due to the potential volume of submissions we likely will not be able to respond to your feedback directly.

Future study update notices will be provided through the Flood Hazard Identification Program. This will include more information about the study status and where we are in the finalization process.
