Daily public service announcements
Public Service Announcements (PSAs) will be released daily at least eight hours in advance of fogging. These PSAs will identify the Insect Management Areas the Insect Control Branch is planning to treat that evening, weather permitting. Until further notice, fogging will be carried out on a daily basis between the hours of 9:30 p.m. and 6:30 a.m.  Fogging will not occur when temperatures are below 13 degrees Celsius and/or wind speeds are not conducive to fogging. 

The insecticide Pro Malathion ULV® will be used. This insecticide has been approved for use in Canada by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency. Pro Malathion ULV® will be used in accordance with federally approved label directions by licensed pesticide applicators.

Buffer zones
All buffer zones will be respected. Crews will ensure that the sprayer is not treating within 90 metres on each side of a registered property on the front street, side street, and rear lane.

Property owners not wanting insecticides applied on or adjacent to their principal residence may register as “Anti-Pesticide Registrants” (APR) for the adult nuisance mosquito control program. Those who wish to register must provide identification that ties the registrant to the address being registered for a buffer zone. A photocopy or scanned document such as a driver’s licence or a utility bill will suffice as acceptable identification proving primary residence. Remember – a 72-hour turnaround time is required.

There are four different options to register:
  • In writing to Insect Control Branch at 3 Grey Street, Winnipeg, MB R2L 1V2,
  • Emailing 311 at 311@winnipeg.ca

Public Advisory from Winnipeg Police Services about reduced speeds in school zones



Thursday, August 27, 2015

Reduced Speeds in School Zones
In June of 2014 the City of Winnipeg Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works voted in favour of reducing speed limits in the area of elementary schools.

Starting September 1, 2015, reduced speeds in school zones will be back in effect.

The following signs are posted in the areas around 171 Winnipeg schools.
  
 


Enforcement of these reduced speed zones, in compliance with the Reduced-Speed School Zone Regulation found in the Manitoba Highway Traffic Act, will include both traditional and photo enforcement to ensure the safety of our children.

Further information, including a list of the schools and roads affected, may be found at the following link:
http://www.winnipeg.ca/Publicworks/InformationAndResources/TrafficControl/ReducedSpeedLimit-SchoolZones.asp


Remember, children are our most precious resource and the seconds lost travelling at these lower speeds is nothing in comparison to the possible loss of even one life.

Just Slow Down.
