2020 Freshet Flood Season Summary

The Board received a report on TNRD’s flood response during the spring and summer of 2020. While the region was spared from significant, wide-spread flooding that has been seen in past years, there were multiple incidents of flooding and challenging situations during this year’s freshet season. The report included a breakdown of the TNRD’s response efforts and areas identified for further discussion and improvement.

The Board authorized the Chair and Corporate Officer to execute a contribution agreement with the Savona Community Association for the operation and maintenance of the Savona Community Park, which includes the picnic area, playground, ancillary buildings, beach, boat launch and dock. The TNRD will provide financial support in the amount of $8,000 annually over a 5-year period commencing in 2020.
