On June 29th, 2022, the City of Merritt’s Recovery Operations Team and consultants presented several potential flood mitigation options to Council. The designs that were presented are preliminary and may be considered further once funding from other levels of government have been secured.

Additional input from the community will be an important part of any final decision making.

Disaster Financial Assistance (DFA) provides financial support to assist individuals, small businesses, and municipal governments in recovering from a disaster and restoring damaged property to its pre-disaster condition. This assistance is meant to compensate for sudden, unexpected, and uninsurable losses.

The Province has listed overland flooding in the Merritt area as a DFA “eligible event”, and Merritt residents may be eligible to apply for this assistance.

Please contact DFA directly, by phone at 1-888-257-4777 (toll-free) or email here.
