Notice: Sandbags
Posted on March 13, 2019

Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority has issued the following notice:

“Well above average snow pack conditions across the Mississippi Valley watershed could lead to above average flooding this spring. Current conditions at several MVCA snow course sites are indicating record water content amounts in the snow for this time of year. While snow is not the primary driver for spring flooding, it is one of several major contributors, along with rainfall and temperature.

With future forecasts suggesting a quick switch from cold to warm temperatures, there is also a concern for potential ice jams, as flows could quickly increase before the ice can melt. Residents are advised to monitor the river closely as spring progresses for signs of ice jams. There could potentially be significant ice damage along lake shorelines if winds accompany the spring breakup period.”

The Township of Lanark Highlands will allow residents experiencing flooding use sand from the Township’s sand domes to sand bag their property. Sand bags will not be made available by the Township, however they can be purchased from the vendors below.
