Is my property at risk?
Properties in Winnipeg can be affected by different types of flooding including basement, overland and river flooding.
It's important to protect your home from basement flooding because no matter where you live in Winnipeg, your home is at risk of basement flooding. Learn how to protect your home from basement flooding.
Creeping water from retention ponds, creeks and ditches, and excess snowmelt can cause overland flooding on some properties. Learn how to protect your home from overland flooding.
Using flood forecast information from the Province of Manitoba, the City will identify homes and properties that are at risk of river flooding. If your property is at risk, the City will hand deliver a notice to your home with information about what steps you should take to protect your home from river flooding.
If you are not contacted by the City with a hand delivered notice, your property has not been identified as being at risk of river flooding.
If you haven't heard from us and you believe your property is at risk of river flooding, please contact 311.
