Please note:
The updated 2018 provincial climate change floodplain mapping for the Waterford River, South Brook, and Kilbride Brook, is in effect immediately for City of St. John’s. Any new developments, or existing developments that have made application to the City but have not received final approval, will be required to use the new floodplain mapping – where applicable. This update is not an exhaustive floodplain delineation in the City and must be read in conjunction with previously completed mapping. Only those floodplains shown on this mapping are updated; previously identified floodplains outside the limits of these updated delineations remain in effect. The 2018 main report and climate change floodplain files can be downloaded from the Province’s website at: https://www.mae.gov.nl.ca/waterres/flooding/frm.html.
