17 Oct RVCA – Regulation limit mapping for the Rideau River from Hogs Back to Rideau Falls
The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) is in the process of amending the mapping schedules for Ontario Regulation 174/06, Development, Interference with Wetlands and Alteration to Shorelines and Watercourses regulation administered within the Rideau Valley watershed under Section 28 of the Conservation Authorities Act, 1990 (as amended). You will recall that this revised regulation was introduced in May of 2006 and replaced the “Fill, Construction and Alteration to Waterways” Regulation that we had administered since 1976.
We are circulating this notice to meet our obligations as outlined by Conservation Ontario and Ministry of Natural Resources and Forests.
The changes to the map schedules will reflect updated, revised and/or new hazard mapping. New regulation limit mapping is proposed for the Rideau River from Hogs Back to Rideau Falls.
The RVCA will host a public open house to present the proposed revised regulation maps. Notices of the proposed amendments and open house will also be posted in the local papers.
The open house will be hosted at the Brewer Park Pool (100 Brewer Way, Ottawa), on Tuesday, November 8 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Lounge Room. We invite you to attend this open house or review material available online at www.rvca.ca (see Special Projects > Flood Risk Mapping Reports).
