The present study, which includes both an application of the PIEVC climate change vulnerability assessment protocol and an update of the City of Welland’s vintage Intensity-Duration-Frequency (IDF) rainfall data, is a co-operative initiative between the City of Welland, Region of Niagara, PIEVC and the Ontario Ministry of Environment. Members of the PIEVC Climate Change Vulnerability Risk Assessment for Municipal Stormwater and Wastewater Infrastructure Steering Committee include the organizations named above plus WaterSmart Niagara, Engineers Canada, Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative, and Environment Canada.
The results from this and other studies have been, and will be, used by PIEVC to establish a Canada-wide vulnerability assessment for buildings, roads, stormwater and wastewater, and water resources.
