March 27, 2014 –
A floodplain mapping project of Mississippi Lake and the Mississippi River from the Highway 7 bridge to the Carleton Place Dam was initiated in 2013. Mississippi Lake mapping was first completed in 1978 and the prepared mapping represents an update to include additional stream flow and lake level data. This project has been initiated in partnership with the Towns of Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills and the Townships of Beckwith and Drummond/North Elmsley.
The public are encouraged to attend the open house and/or provide comments on the draft mapping completed for Mississippi Lake and the Mississippi River from Highway 7 bridge to Carleton Place Dam.
