Assiniboine River & Lake Manitoba Basins Flood Mitigation Study - 2016

KGS Group

The flood of 2011 highlighted several potential “weak links” in Manitoba’s flood control system. To address the propensity for flooding in the Assiniboine River and Lake Manitoba basins, KGS Group was retained by Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation to conduct a flood mitigation study, which identified major vulnerabilities and assessed over 70 mitigation options. Based on the results of sophisticated models and feedback from Public Open House events, over 1 billion dollars of flood mitigation upgrades required to increase the flood protection level were identified. The results will serve as the foundation for major flood mitigation programs for the next several decades.
