Dykelands Infastructure Assessment-Tantramar/ Projet concernant les terres endiguées de Tantramar

Need for the Project: 

Property and agricultural lands at risk due to inland and marine flooding and erosion, especially in relation to dyke flood protection structures.

Project Objectives: 

Digital elevation modeling is being completed for the area and future sea level rise and flooding will be modeled. Infrastructure at risk will be mapped as part of the project. This project overlaps with one of Nova Scotia’s projects and will provide planning tools to other stakeholders such as CN, CBC, Parks Canada and various provincial departments.

Project Deliverables:
