The Lakehead Region Conservation Authority has engaged the services of KGS Group to undertake an update to the 1985 Neebing River Flood and Fill Line Mapping Study. The project updates the existing models and maps to current standards using state of the art modelling, GIS techniques and LiDAR topography. The model takes into account structure and land changes since the last study was completed.
The updated studies and maps will be available for viewing at the Open House with LRCA staff and consultants from KGS Group available to answer any questions related to the Study.
The updated Neebing River floodlines and associated fill regulated areas will be incorporated in City of Thunder Bay, Geographic Township of McIntyre, Screening Map-4 and in the Municipality of Oliver Paipoonge, Geographic Township of Oliver, Screening Map-2, which depict the approximate regulated area. Screening Maps are used by the Lakehead Region Conservation Authority in the administration of Ontario Regulation 180/06: Development, Interference with Wetlands and Alterations to Shorelines and Watercourses. Subject to Board approval, the 2018 updated Neebing River Flood and Fill lines will become effective on April 26, 2018 and will replace the former 1985 Neebing River Flood and Fill lines.
LRCA Strategic Plan 2018-2022
The LRCA embarked on a six-month planning process during 2017 to create the organization's first Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan will play an important role in shaping the LRCA’s planning and decision-making for the Board of Directors, the Management Team and staff for a five-year period from 2018 to 2022. The LRCA contracted Arbora Management Services to facilitate the planning process and to develop a relevant and implementable plan.
