March 15, 2019 Spring Melt and Flood Preparation Update
 
The R.M. of St. Andrews is actively preparing for the spring melt both to prevent flooding from overland and river waters.  The Public Works Department have started their pre-emptive Flood Prevention Plan and have hired 4 different contractors to clean our drainage system which should be done in approximately 10 more days (depending on weather conditions).  All our pumps and flood prevention equipment have been prepped and are ready to be deployed as required.
 
The Amphibex is scheduled to finish breaking ice on the Red River in an attempt to prevent ice jams by the 17th of March, 2019.
 
The Municipal Emergency Coordinator along with Municipal Employees have identified areas that may require flood tube dikes and will be deploying them prior to the high water arriving, if and when necessary.
 
We are monitoring the forecasts daily for both Manitoba and North Dakota and will react accordingly.

Overland Flooding PictureThe Province of Manitoba's flood forecasters monitor the amount of rainfall and snow and the impact on levels on rivers, lakes, creeks and streams throughout the year.  This monitoring helps in predicting flood outlooks each year but there are always many variables such as cold temperatures and precipitation amounts that can affect these outlooks.  The most current information can be found on their website below.
