Rivers Dam has No Significant Structural Damage, Residents in Western and Southwestern Manitoba Given OK to Return Home

Engineering assessments at the Rivers Dam in Manitoba determined no substantial damage to the structure at this time.
There were initial concerns about the Dam’s structural integrity as a result of record rain causing high water levels on the Little Saskatchewan River, affecting the municipalities of Riverdale, Whitehead and Cornwallis and the City of Brandon.
Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler says provincial officials will continue to monitor the Dam until water levels recede further.
Area residents who evacuated have been given the OK to return home.
