Flood Response Safety, COVID-19 Pandemic and Your Responsibilities
 
The R.M. is complying with all provincial direction and orders implemented to protect public health and safety in light of COVID-19, and this includes changes to this year's flood response.  Protection of your property is your responsibility and we are encouraging you to take action now.

  • As in years previous, individuals are responsible for building their own dikes.
  • The R.M. will not be installing sandbags or tube dikes on your property.
  • Empty sandbags can be picked up at the Public Works Shop in Clandeboye between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.
  • There is a limit of 200 empty bags per person.  There is sand available in the Public Works yard where you can fill bags.  Social distancing measures will be put in place for your safety.
  • You should have an emergency plan and enough supplies on hand for 72 hours.
Dealing with potential spring flooding while adhering to the safety measures required for the COVID-19 crisis is a challenge we are facing together.  Thank you for your patience, understanding and cooperation.
