The City of Windsor is making sandbags available to  homes are located along the north side of Riverside Drive from George Avenue east to our border with the Town of Tecumseh.

The city says that while there is no imminent threat at this time, water levels are high enough to warrant concern and preparations.

This week, a detailed letter from the City Engineer was distributed to 300 at-risk homes with additional information and advice on how to protect residential properties. A further 17,000 will receive an informational flyer within the next week.

Residents from those addresses are asked to call 311 , and an appointment can be set up to meet City staff at the sandbag station. Appointments will be scheduled between 7am and 3pm. Monday to Friday, beginning Friday, April 3rd, 2020.

The sandbag station is located at 9410 Little River Road (just west of the Little River Bridge and the roundabout). Residents attending the sandbag station will be asked to show proof of address  and to check in with the attendant each time they visit. The sandbag station will have a City staff member on hand, but the bags and filling of the bags are the responsibility of residents

As per advice from the Windsor Essex County Health Unit, residents are reminded to practice social distancing when filling sandbags, and stay 6 feet away from anyone else who may be filling sandbags.
