Stakeholder Survey on Flooding
Flooding has been in the news lately with people stranded, transit vehicles underwater, and flooded basements. This survey seeks your opinion on flooding and what can be done about it. Your feedback will help us shape a new program we are launching to address flooding in our community.
1. What best describes the impact flooding has had on you (check all that apply):
I have been personally affected by flooding.
My friends, family or neighbours have been affected by flooding.
I have heard about it in the news.
Flooding hasn't affected me.
2. There may be several issues that need addressing in your community. How important is flooding relative to them?
3. Which of the following statements best describes your views on flooding.
Flooding harms us all: Individuals, communities, businesses and governmented need to work together to reduce the harm flooding causes.

4. Flooding happens when too much water enters our sewers and waterways. There are many solutions that reduce the harm of flooding. Which of the following interest you? (Check all that apply.)
Replacing hard surfaces (e.g. pavement, parking lots) with permeable surfaces so water can soak into the ground.
Using plant (e.g. bushes, trees, grass) and green technology (e.g. rain barrels) to soak up water before it gets into the sewers.
Installing green roofs on building (e.g. shopping malls, apartment buildings) to soak up the water.
Upgrading the municipal sewers so they can handle more water.
Installing a sump pump.
5. Do governments need to act now to reduce the harm caused by flooding?

Create incentives for people to eliminate hard surfaces on their property.
Charge property owners for how much water goes into the sewers from their property.
