$794,520 in federal funding announced for flood mapping

The province is adding vital flood information to its flood mapping inventory for three of its priority watersheds in the Assiniboine River and Lake Manitoba basins.

This is with support from the federal government. Announced today, almost 800 thousand dollars in federal funding over three years for Manitoba under federal National Disaster Mitigation Program to be used to produce flood-risk maps for three watersheds in Manitoba.


“Identifying the height and extent of a potential flood event is critical to support informed decisions and investments to reduce the impacts of flooding on communities,” said Government of Canada Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler. “Manitoba is one of the best prepared provinces to respond to flooding and mitigate damages. The funding announced today will help expand the mapping of flood-prone areas of the province to better forecast and prepare for what nature sends our way.”

The three priority areas identified for this funding are the lower Assiniboine River, from Portage la Prairie to the west Perimeter Highway, the Whitemud River, and the Souris River.
