Press Release/Flood Watch May 16, 2017

At the May 15th meeting of Brighton Council, staff was instructed by Council to increase their efforts to assist residents who are protecting their homes from the Lake Ontario flood waters.

Over the next few days staff, along with volunteer firefighters from Brighton and our neighbouring communities will deploy to areas of Gosport, Shoal Point Road and Harbour Street. They will work with homeowners to secure the considerable work already in place to protect their homes from floodwater. Sand and bags will be available at Public Works at 67 Sharp Road, as well as various points on the waterfront for home owners and volunteers to fill and use bags to protect their homes.

Lake levels are predicted to continue to rise in the coming weeks and many more homes could potentially be affected. Brighton staff will monitor lake levels and updates from the Lower Trent Conservation Authority to anticipate problems and further refine our plan.

Should the levels rise significantly in the coming weeks the Municipality of Brighton may be required to put a call out for volunteers to assist with sandbagging to protect additional homes.

Individual homeowners who have concerns or questions may contact the municipality at (day time) 613-475-1744 (after hours) 613-967-8707 to arrange an assessment of their property. As noted above sand and bags will be available at 67 Sharp Road as well as various locations in the affected areas of the waterfront.

In this time of need any individual that is willing to volunteer, please contact the Fire Department at 613-475-1744.

Flood Watch/Warning

Attached is the flood watch/ warning issued May 2, 2017 by the lower Trent conservation authority.

Due to the risk of flooding from potential winds and wave action off the lake the municipality of Brighton has a limited number of filled sandbags available for resident who live in high risk areas along the shoreline. We recommend that residents use a minimum number of sandbag to protect only the low openings that have the potential to be affected by flooding from waves off the lake. 

Bags are available to be picked up at 67 Sharp Road for high risk and shoreline residents only.

Welcome to beautiful Brighton!


Enjoy your visit to the charming harbour town of Brighton, located on Highway 2 along the scenic shores of Lake Ontario, an hour and a half east of Toronto.

Brighton offers the tranquil atmosphere of a small town with a wide range of boutiques and annual activities destined to leave you with lasting memories! Our range of services appeal to seniors, young families, and new residents including well-maintained parks, an attractive education system and an active Community and Recreation Centre for all ages! These assets, paired with the diverse selection of residential housing and our positioning in the region, make Brighton an attractive place to live.

One of the greatest year round destinations in Brighton is Presqu’ile Provincial Park; famous for lakeside camping, swimming, windsurfing, hiking and birding with over 220,000 visitors annually. Visitors to the park receive a warm welcome at 'The Gates', a gallery and performance space for those who share an interest and passion for promoting arts and culture! Lasting memories are also made each fall during Brighton's Applefest, a celebration of our rich agricultural land and abundance of apple orchards!
