Welcome to Hamilton Stormwater Week
Green Venture is hosting the second annual week-long campaign about stormwater in Hamilton!
In March 2019, the City of Hamilton declared a climate emergency. Climate change is forcing us to adapt to extreme weather events, including urban flooding. There have been an increasing number of record setting storm events in Hamilton. Urban flooding has serious environmental, economic and social implications for our community. To address this, the City of Hamilton recently announced a stormwater fee would begin in 2025 and are currently investigating different funding models.
Check out our in person events and educational resources that will dive deeper into the different issues and solutions surrounding water in our community.
