Public Notice - Closure of St. Andrews Lock and Dam



/CNW/ - 

Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) wishes to advise users of the annual closure of the St. Andrews Lock and Dam for the season .

GATINEAU, QC, Oct. 4, 2017

PSPC staff will begin raising the dam's control curtains on, or soon after, this date. As a result, water levels in the Red and Assiniboine rivers, in the Winnipeg area and north to Lockport, will be lowered gradually over the next 2 to 3 weeks as the water is released. If winter conditions set in, the curtains will be completely lifted as required.

Owners of vessels, barges and all property on the Red and Assiniboine rivers and their tributaries are advised to protect their property.

The gated areas below the dam may be closed because of high, turbulent waters and dangerous currents, severe weather or operational requirements. Once closed, these areas will remain closed until the spring.

PSPC thanks users for their patience.
