Lansdowne – Opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway and Township monitoring water levels and making sand and sandbags available to residents.

The St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation announced that the waterway’s Montreal / Lake Ontario Section will begin the 2020 Navigation Season on April 1, 2020.

The Cataraqui Conservation Authority (CRCA) has indicated that water levels will continue to rise over the next two weeks; however, the peak levels remain dependent on weather conditions. Township staff are monitoring information on local water levels, as it is made available and are launching a high-water web page to centralize information and resources related to flooding.

To assist residents in preparing their property for high water the Township’s Operations Department is providing sand and sandbags at the Operations Garage located at 1233 Prince Street Lansdowne and a second location at the end of Narrow’s Lane effective April 1, 2020. Residents must bring their own shovels.  Please note gloves and appropriate footwear are required.  Please use only what you need.

In accordance with the Provincial Emergency Measures for COVID-19 guidelines for physical distancing must be followed. Please ensure a separation distance of 2 metres between individuals and ensure that there are not more than 5 people using the site at a time.

Updates will be posted on the Township’s website www.leeds1000islands.ca and on Facebook.
