The City of Windsor says that officials continue to monitor weather conditions and the water levels of the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair, both of which remain well above traditional averages.

Water monitoring is expected to continue until at least September, as the risk of overland flooding for properties along the water could change quickly with either heavy rain or high winds.

The City of Windsor also plans to continue to make sandbags available to residents living in a specified area along Riverside Drive East, but beginning Thursday, May 23rd, 2019, those residents wanting sandbags will be required to contact 311 and set up a time to meet City staff at the sandbag station.

Appointments will be made for between 6:30am and 3:30pm Monday to Friday. The initial surge of resident need has been met, so the city says that the change to a pre-ordering system is now the most efficient option.

The sandbag station is located at 9410 Little River Road and is available to residents living between George Avenue and east to the Town of Tecumseh border, living on the north side of Riverside Drive.

Residents attending the sandbag station will be asked to show proof of address.
