WELLAND – The City of Welland is commencing a thorough investigation throughout the Dain City area this fall to produce and implement a Dain City Inflow and Infiltration Investigation and Remediation Action Plan (DCII&RAP).
The DCII&RAP is a response to recent flooding in the Dain City neighbourhood. A full project outline is available to the public on the city’s public engagement platform, yourchannel.welland.ca.
The city has retained the engineering firm GM BluePlan Engineering Limited to conduct a comprehensive research strategy that includes on-site work exploration and a data collection survey for people who have been affected by basement or property flooding.
City staff expect to have a detailed DCII&RAP report completed and presented to Welland City Council this December.
“Being active and on-site in Dain City is essential to finding the sources of high Inflow and Infiltration, so we can learn more about this neighbourhood’s drainage issues to build a clear strategy plan,” said Marvin Ingebrigtsen, Infrastructure Planning and Asset Management Supervisor. “Our goal is to reduce stress on the wastewater systems through a reduction in stormwater entering the wastewater system.”
