City hosting meeting on March 26 to discuss new flood risk reduction rebate program

March 17, 2014

Cornwall Blueprint

As part of the Cornwall Blueprint, City Council has approved the framework for a flood risk reduction rebate program to provide assistance to homeowners in flooding-affected areas.

The rebate could be up to $3,600 to address such upgrades as:

  • Eavestrough and foundation drain disconnection
  • Back-water valve and sump pump installation
  • Lot-grading improvements

A public information session is planned for Wednesday, March 26 at 7 pm at the Benson Centre.

Everyone is welcome to attend.

At this meeting, City Staff will provide an update on the rebate as well as various actions the City has taken - and plans to undertake - to address flooding.
