The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority and the City of Ottawa have announced that the Britannia Village Flood Control Project is now wrapped up.

The scheme was completed in accordance with the Class Environmental Assessment for Remedial Flood and Erosion Control Projects, approved under the Environmental Assessment Act for projects of this type.

According to the official announcement, all monitoring program commitments have been met for the approved projects.

This project will protect parts of the Britannia Village community that would otherwise be affected by overbank flooding during future Ottawa River floods.

The main purpose of this flood protection scheme is to reduce expected property damages, public safety risks and inconveniences in this existing community during future flood events, up to and including the 1:100 year flood.
