Manitoba

Manitoba was the third province to join the Flood Damage Reduction Program, signing General, Mapping and Studies Agreements in December 1976. The 100-year flood was used to designate flood risk areas in 17 communities. The designated areas are divided into two zones, the floodway, where further development is discouraged, and the flood fringe where flood proofed development is possible.

A sub-agreement on Flood Forecasting helped the province to improve its system of flood forecasting on the Red, Assiniboine and Souris Rivers.

A further sub-agreement focused on upgrading the ring dyking system to provide protection to the 100-year flood level in the Red River Valley communities of Brunkild, Rosenort, Letellier, St. Jean Baptiste, Morris, St. Adolphe, Emerson and Dominion City.
