Sandbagging

If you are concerned for your property, the use of sandbags is a simple, but effective way to prevent or reduce flood water damage.

The Municipality will be placing sand and sand bags for use by residents, if required, at the following locations:

Lorette - Public Works/Firehall (1393 Dawson Road)

Landmark - Public Works Shop (150 Main Street)

RM Office/Public Works Shop - 28007 Mun 52N, Dufresne, MB

Ste Geneviève - Fire Hall (68 Saltel Road)

Each location has sand, bag + ties and funnels for filling available.

*Please ensure to bring your shovel and be considerate and only take what you need*

The sand provided is ECO sand. This is the same sand utilized by the Municipality on the roads/streets for traction control. 

The sand blend consists of 1.25% salt and beat juice brine, which resists freezing, however please note that this material will freeze if rain and freezing temperatures occur.
