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.
