In light of the potential for flooding, a sandbag distribution centre remains in operation for residents who live along the north side of Riverside Drive from George Avenue east to the border with the Town of Tecumseh.

The City of Windsor says that during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, for some individuals, filling and transporting sand bags can be difficult.

To make it easier,  they have worked with local contractors to negotiate a discounted price for the delivery of pallets containing the sandbags to residents in the area determined to be at the greatest risk of overland flooding.

Residents are asked to call 311 for the contractors contact information and are responsible for calling the contractor and arranging the pickup and delivery.

Residents are still able to pick up their own sandbags and are asked to call 311 to book an appointment to meet City staff at the sandbag station. Appointments will be scheduled between 7am and 3pm, Monday to Friday. There is a limit of 100 sandbags per day per home.

The sandbag station is located at 9410 Little River Road (just west of the Little River Bridge and the roundabout). Residents must check in with the attendant during each visit and show proof of address (mail or billing information showing address). The sandbag station will have a City staff member on hand, and some assistance with the filling of the bags will be available upon request.
