Sandbag Pre-Deployment Strategy

The Town has developed a sandbag pre-deployment strategy for flood prone areas (Lineham & Riverside) which details flood mitigation activities and procedures, including the delivery of sandbags in/to the flood plain during a flood event. The sandbag pre-deployment strategy is based on weather predictions and the levels of warning issued by Alberta Environment and is coordinated by Public Works (Operations).
