Diversion has been opened

ALMS was informed the diversion was opened this morning.

Apparently the province wants to keep downstream flow on Lower Assiniboine below 10,000 CFS. Unclear as to why the Province isn’t building downstream capacity on the lower Assiniboine as was recommended by ALMS after the 2014 and 2011 mismanagement events. Recall we lobbied for downstream flows to be allowed above 10,000 CFS so that the lower Assiniboine could slowly regain some of its lost capacity.

Further information can be found on ALMS website : By clicking here.

Reminder: Giveaway weekend starts tomorrow

By popular request, this year the DBA is organizing our first “give away weekend”. The idea is simple, give your reusable unwanted items a new home and keep them out of the landfill.

When

  • June 27th and 28th, 2020

What to do

  • place unwanted, reusable household items at the curb on your front street
  • label each item with a “FREE” sticker or sign
  • keep any items safely stored away that you don’t want to give away
  • remove leftover items from the curb by dusk on Sunday
  • Respect COViD rules and make sure items are clean

What to give

  • books, CDs, DVDs
  • furniture, electronics, artwork, mirrors
  • sports equipment, toys
  • yard and gardening tools and equipment (e.g., lawn mowers, snow throwers, rakes, shovels)
  • small appliances, kitchen gadgets, dishes, cutlery, pots and pans
  • construction material (e.g., nails, paint, wood)
  • clothing

What not to give

  • items harbouring bed bugs (e.g., mattresses, furniture, bedding)
  • toilets
  • visit the Consumer Product Safety Bureau to find out about items that aren’t safe to give away (e.g., baby walkers, lawn darts)

Giveaway etiquette

  • Take only the items at the curb marked “FREE”
  • COViD guidelines: Use Gloves to handle items and keep them COViD free. Make sure you clean items you take home using a disinfectant.
  • Check all items closely for bed bugs before you put them in your vehicle or bring them into your home.
  • Respect other people’s property – don’t walk or drive on people’s lawns or gardens.
  • Giveaway items should still be in good condition.
  • Don’t discard any items on another person’s lawn.
  • Obey the traffic laws at all times (e.g., don’t block traffic, park illegally or block people’s driveways with your vehicle) and watch out for children.
