Minden Hills will be getting $22,500 from the federal government for flood reduction measures.

The township learned it was successful in its application for the grant under the National Disaster Mitigation Program, which comes from Public Safety Canada.

The money will fund a drainage study in high risk flood zones along the Gull River, specifically in the Village of Minden.

According to the terms of the grant, the study will help identify if there are infrastructure upgrades that can reduce the risk of flooding.

Minden will also be getting $69,192 from a provincial grant towards the study.

The analysis will be done sometime in the spring.

Minden declared a state of emergency in 2013 and last year due to flooding.

None of the cost will be absorbed by the township.
