FLOOD MITIGATION

Residents have been frustrated by repeated flooding, in Ward 7 and other areas, that they’re even afraid to go away for a vacation.

Many residents of WARD 7 have lost the flooding insurance coverage for their homes. On election day, let’s stand up together and SAY “NO” TO REPEATED FLOODED BASEMENTS!

On April 18, 2019, there has been an announcement of 32 million dollars in funding for flood mitigation measures, from the Government of Canada.

Once elected, I will follow-up and support:

  • Flood mitigation measures and their implementation;

  • Keeping in place the financial subsidy to install a sump pump with sump pump overflow and/or backwater valve(s) and/or disconnect foundation drains from the floor drain;

  • Vulgarizing the information to the most affected areas that residents will be informed about the possibility and the opportunity;

  • Subsidizing the disconnection of Downspouts wherever they still exist.

DRAINS & SEWERS

Whether the last floodings were caused by blocked drains or heavy rains, it is up to the City of Windsor to maintain the drains, the sewers (Storm and Sanitary) and make sure they are up to the capacity of the City’ s expansion.

Once elected, I will support and follow up for:

  • Investments in Drains & Sewers’ capabilities.

 

BREAK WALL AT RIVERSIDE DRIVE

The break wall at Riverside Drive, built around the 1930s, needs to be replaced or repaired. Its durability and sustainability helps to alleviate the threats of flooding brought by the high level of water from our rivers and lakes.

Since it is an infrastructure whose funding has to come from various levels of Government (Federal, Provincial, and Municipal), and whose some steps have already been undertaken, and I will support and follow-up on them.
