Haliburton County’s Warden says its requests were well received by provincial cabinet ministers.

Brent Devolin was in Ottawa last week meeting with politicians from both levels talking about flood mitigation.

Devolin says getting imaging and updated water flow data could be helpful in flood reduction.

He says he asked the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change and the Minsitry of Natural Resources and Forestry for light air mapping.

Devolin also says the county is looking for more data from the province on climate change.

Minden Hills declared a state of emergency April 30th when high water levels in the Gull River caused a flood

 

Devolin is also the Reeve of Minden.
