Response from DMs


Regulation Review Committee Adds more open houses

ALMS has been advised the Lake Manitoba/Lake St. Martin Regulation Review Committee has announced additional open house dates, adding Fairford, Ashern & Toutes Aides:

Here is a copy of their recent communique to ALMS:

An important aspect of the Committee’s work involves travelling to flood-affected communities around Lake Manitoba and Lake St. Martin to hear directly from stakeholders and the public at open houses. You are invited to attend one of these open houses, which are being held throughout the month of September.

All but one of the open houses will be held jointly by the Committee and the 2011 Manitoba Flood Review Task Force, with the exception being the open house in Toutes Aides, MB (see details below).  The Committee and the Task Force are separate initiatives, however both are concerned with improving Manitoba’s ability to fight floods and manage water. The work of the Committee and the Task Force is being conducted concurrently and the two groups have been coordinating their investigations and activities where possible. Members of the both the Committee and the Task Force will be present at the joint open houses listed below, and information concerning the work of each will be on display. You are welcome to attend and provide feedback to members of one or both groups.
