Our role in flood protection is prevention
The LSRCA operates a flood forecasting and warning system and monitors watershed conditions on a daily basis. The role of the Authority during a flood event is not emergency response or clean-up.
If you are experiencing flooding, please contact your local municipality. For a flood emergency, call 911.
What exactly is a 100 year flood?
The so-called "100-year flood" means a serious flood has a one per cent probability of occurring in any given year. But that does not mean a flood is only likely to occur once in a 100-year period. It only describes the chance of experiencing a major flood in any given year. A 100-year flood can happen two years in a row.
