NEWS RELEASE                                                                                                                     FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 11th, 2019
The Township of Laurentian Valley strongly encourages residents who are in affected area to consider the possibility of evacuation.  Access to flooded properties will remain difficult, making any response problematic.  Should you choose to stay, supplies, including food and water, should be refreshed immediately to be able to remain until flood waters recede. Across Renfrew County and Eastern Ontario, military resources are now being prioritized to critical infrastructure. Township resources are limited.
To report an issue regarding the flood please call the Township Office at 613-735-6291 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. this weekend, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. from Monday to Friday, or 613-735-6070 after hours. If a life threatening situation call 911.
Water levels will remain high and are expected to peak again as flows from upper reservoirs are expected due to northern melt. We ask that sand bags be maintained. Additional sandbags are available at different locations, including Forest Park Rd at Matheson Park, Highway 148 at Traxton Way, Drive-In Road at Burns Drive and at the Municipal Office located at 460 Witt Road. Visit for the latest information.
Those residents requiring emergency lodging and assistance should contact the Red Cross at 1-866-637-4263. Those that have self-evacuated should also register to participate in any funding that might become available in the future from the Red Cross’ fundraising appeal by calling 1-800-863-6582.
The Township’s preparations are also underway for the recovery phase of the emergency.
A Public Town Hall meeting organized by the County of Renfrew for flood affected residents will occur on Monday, May 13, 2019 from 1:00 – 3:30pm at the Ma-te-Way Activity Centre, 1 Ma-Te-Way Park Drive, Renfrew. Representatives from various provincial, regional and supporting organizations, such as the Ministry of Municipal Affairs & Housing, the Canadian Red Cross and the Renfrew County & District Health Unit will be in attendance to answer questions and provide support.
Furthermore, to all residents that are affected by the flood the Red Cross will be set up this coming week in two separate locations.

To expedite the process for receiving assistance to cover basic needs, prior to attending one of these centres, flood impacted residents are strongly encouraged to register with the Red Cross ahead of time by calling: 1-800-863-6582 . Residents are highly encourage to attend one of these centres if you are affected by the 2019 flood.

We would like to remind residents that regular township services are impacted as resources are being deployed to the flooding emergency. A fire ban remains in effect. A backlog of gravel road grading and pot hole filling on surface treated roads is being addressed as time and resources permit. We thank residents for their continued patience and cooperation.
