Asvisory of the Day



This story is brought to you in part by Waterloo Biofilter Systems

While Quebec and Ontario are dealing with evacuations and major flooding in certain areas, New Brunswick has had it relatively easy this spring.

Robert Duguay Media Relations with the New Brunswick Department of Justice and Public Safety pointed out that there has been "no major damage or impacts to public infrastructure." There has been some minor flooding and some water on roads. Duguay added that the 2017 flood events "happened in areas that experience annual flooding."

Duguay said that "generally the province will monitor the roads for integrity," and if the roads prove to be unsafe due to water "they will be closed until they are."

Being that there has been no major flooding in the province there are no financial aid packages available to the public. Duguay said that "the government can decide to put [one] in place," if there was a major flood event and this has been done in the past.

Duguay stated that the majority of work in the immediate aftermath of a flood are "practical and generally deal with the cleaning of the roadways." Duguay suggested that New Brunswick "had it easy this year," where only the normal flood plains were affected.
