Public Works and Government Services Canada: Public Access to Areas Around St. Andrews Lock and Dam Reopened - Caution Still Warranted

LOCKPORT, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - May 1, 2009) - Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) has lifted the restriction on public access to areas around the St. Andrews Lock and Dam at Lockport.

PWGSC reminds the public that although water levels along the Red River have receded, they remain high and the threat of flooding is still a possibility. Access to these public areas will be restricted again, without notice, should conditions change and public safety become a concern. Please continue to respect any barricades and signage on site.

For more information on flood conditions, please refer to the Government of Manitoba Web site at http://www.gov.mb.ca/flooding/index.html.
