Flooding in the ‘burgs’

This issue of flooding in the villages of Morrisburg and Williamsburg was raised at the February 7th South Dundas council meeting.

Asked for an update on the flooding situation, Chief Administrative Officer Stephen McDonald reported that AECOM is plotting “all the problems.” The study, he continued, “provides a really good shot of where the significant issues are with blockages and seeping through pipes.”

“Once Morrisburg and Williamsburg are done, they’ll show council and the public,” he said, referring to AECOM’s study of the drainage systems.

In response to concern over how much money is being spent on the study versus the work to be done, McDonald assured council that “most of the money is going to be spent where it should be spent – on the bricks and mortar.”
