Public Notice - Township of Laurentian Valley

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                                                        May 29, 2019


As water levels continue to recede, the recovery phase of the flood emergency has begun including removal & disposal of sandbags as well as flood damaged items and debris.


Although water levels are beginning to recede, residents are urged to keep sandbag walls intact until there is no further threat of flooding, including from wave action.

The Township of Laurentian Valley will be providing assistance to residents with the collection of sandbags. The Township is currently in the process of recruiting a Contractor to collect all sandbags including those on private property. Residents are encouraged to contact the Municipality to arrange for the collection of the sandbags. Please note that the Contractor will not collect any plastic, wood or other flood related debris.

Residents are reminded that sandbags can potentially be contaminated with harmful bacteria from failed septic systems.

Bags should not be cut open or used for sandboxes, playgrounds, or other areas where direct contact with humans or animals may occur. The sand should not be disposed of in a wetland, waterway, floodplain, or other environmentally sensitive or protected area.


The Township is also assisting with the collection of flood damaged items from homes and cottages. Residents are asked to contact the Township Office for further information. An information bulletin will also be mailed to residents and property owners in flood impacted areas.  If there are items that washed ashore and onto your property that do not belong to you and you are not certain as to contents, you are asked to contact the Township Office.


Wood debris from properties is to be placed beside your driveway, away from the travelled portion of the road. This includes trees/branches that may have washed ashore with the high water levels, as well as, damaged decking, fencing or dock materials. All wood must be free of plastic, ropes and other foreign materials. The Township will arrange for the collection of the wood materials once flood waters have receded and residents are able to clean up their properties.

Additional information is also available from the Renfrew County & District Health Unit about handing food after a flood by calling 613-735-8654 or checking their website
