Flood Watch

Flood Watch

Ever since Lake Agassiz had domain over our province, we have been a flood plain. A fact that we are reminded of every spring as we watch the snow melt and the rivers begin to rise.

To discover how vulnerable your museum and outbuildings are if waters rise, we suggest having a site visit from the professional conservator from our Cultural Stewardship Program (CSP). The conservator will point out areas of concern and make suggestions on how best to mitigate potential flood damage and how to recover if the worst does happen.

Another suggestion is to visit the Province's flood notices and updates website.

Here is a List of Suppliers if you're looking to stock up on your supplies.

Apply for a Site Visit from the CSP Conservator to assess and help mitigate potential flood or water damage.

If you'd like more information contact CSP Conservator Heather Beerling at conservator(at) museumsmanitoba(dot)com or call the AMM office at 204-947-1782.
