Curve Lake First Nation is suggesting that those households in flood susceptible areas may want to consider sand bagging vulnerable areas around their home. Sand bags are available in limited quantities from Public Works and from some local hardware stores. Sand is available for flooding from Public Works. Most residents purchase bagged topsoil for their spring gardening. These bags are a great ‘sand bag’ too and can be re-used for gardening later.
