Water Resources Public Infrastructure Vulnerability Assessment for Placentia, Newfoundland

The Town of Placentia, Newfoundland, was chosen as the focus for one of the two water - resources case studies.

This case study centers on four pieces of infrastructure in the Town of Placentia, located on Newfoundland’s Avalon Peninsula and on the east coast of Placentia Bay. The community encompasses Dunville, which forms the northwestern section of the town and is connected to downtown by a lift bridge. The Placentia area is subject to frequent storms, which have caused serious flooding in low-lying locations.
