SANDBAGS

If your property is prone to flooding, please take the necessary measures to protect structures, equipment and materials before flooding is imminent. Owners are responsible for all measures required for flood protection of private property.

Sandbagging is one of the most versatile flood fighting tools and is a simple and effective way to prevent or reduce flood water damage, when done correctly. Placing sandbags around your property is a smart and proactive move to protect against rising water levels. Unfilled bags and sand are provided free to residents for the purpose of protecting their homes. Sandbag and sand locations can be found at rdck.ca/befloodprepared

If you do visit a sandbag filling location, please make sure to keep at least two metres distance from others. Do not visit a site if you are feeling unwell or are experiencing flu-like symptoms.
