The need to build sandbag dikes has been greatly reduced due to the ongoing installation of permanent flood protection by the City of Winnipeg and property owners.
Using flood forecast information from the Province of Manitoba, the City will identify homes and properties that need a sandbag dike, and will contact property owners directly using hand-delivered notices.
If you are not contacted, your property has not been identified as being at risk of river flooding.
If you haven't heard from us and you believe your property to be at risk of river flooding, please contact 311.
