Flood Fight 2019 – Call for Sandbagging Volunteers

This Saturday, April 6th, 2019, the WRC will need volunteers to help in this year’s flood fight. With the waters expected to reach 2009 levels, 22.6 ft James, with the base of our boat bay doors seeing flood waters at 18.5 ft James, we will need to erect a wall approximately 5 ft high in order to withstand this year’s waters.

At 9am, we’ll be tidying up the boat bays, erecting the flood barrier wall, and three or more volunteers with trucks will be needed to go pick up sandbags, while the rest of the volunteers put up poly and start a sandbagging line. If you are willing to lend a truck, please contact Andrew Lamont, and meet at the City’s Thomas Avenue Yard.

Remember, many hands make light work!
