14 14  Weather is changing  Increased rainfall intensity  Change in winter precipitation  Increased winter temperature fluctuations Fredericton’s Experience

15 15  St. John River flooding Fredericton’s Experience

16 16 Adaptive Measures in Fredericton  Separated sewer systems  Infrastructure renewal  Major / minor storm system  Increased major system capacity  Upgraded culverts

17 17 Adaptive Measures in Fredericton  An “unconnected” Downtown  Raised critical road sections  Storm water valves  Attenuation ponds

18 18 Adaptive Measures in Fredericton  Net zero storm water guidelines and development standards  Minimum habitable space elevation

20 20 Hamilton Fredericton Coquitlam Municipal Risk Assessment Tool

21 21 Municipal Engagement  Nine municipalities involved:  Bathurst, NB  Winnipeg, MB  London, ON  Moncton, NB  Coquitlam, BC  Fredericton, NB  Halifax, NS  St. John’s, NL  Hamilton, ON

22 22 MRAT AGE OF SEWER MAINTENANCE PROGRAM WATER PROXIMITY

23 23 MRAT CLAIMS HISTORY WEATHER PREDICTORS

24 24 MRAT Risk Maps 2020 NOW 2050

25 25 Benefits of MRAT  Redefines relationship between insurers and municipalities  Fosters collaboration toward common cause  Game-changer – only tool of its kind in world

26 26 Benefits of MRAT to Municipalities  Protects citizens and property from flood damage  Better forecasts and prepares for severe weather  Prioritizes infrastructure improvements/repairs based on current and future risk  Justifies and leverages federal infrastructure dollars  Assists municipalities in becoming leaders in severe weather adaptation and infrastructure renewal

27 27 Why Fredericton? - Understanding of our system - Cooperation between Divisions - History

28 28 Why Fredericton? - Topography - GIS data / mapping

29 29 Why Fredericton? - Separated system - Sanitary and storm sewer maintenance - Unique servicing policy

30 30 The Future of MRAT

31 31  Large amounts of data transferred  1st generation mapping reviewed  2 nd generation mapping, June 2014  Gained more knowledge about our system Accomplishments to Date

32 32 Next steps for Fredericton  Review 2 nd generation maps  Validate mapping  Incorporate highlighted areas into infrastructure renewal planning / construction  Review new IDF curves

33 33 Current Status  Data obtained and maps developed for six additional municipalities  MRAT philosophy validated and accepted by Engineers of pilot municipalities  Built relationships with FCM, participating municipalities, federal and provincial governments

34 34 Future of MRAT  Interest in MRAT from cities across Canada continues  P&C insurance industry will give MRAT development and risk maps to municipalities  Goal is to predict likelihood of catastrophic sewer backups to year 2050

35 35 Future of Adaptation  Find solutions to the problem of natural catastrophes and severe weather  Create awareness and solutions around adaptation to severe weather and catastrophic losses  Build resiliency across Canada for:  Flood mitigation  Earthquake preparedness  Community safety
