Current River Conditions:

Winnipeg river levels have been drawn down to winter levels. These lower water levels makes navigation on these waterways more dangerous. There is a greater likelihood your watercraft could come into contact with submerged items.

As always please be safe on and around our waterways.

The Winnipeg Police Service River Patrol is part of the Traffic Unit. The River Patrol is committed to enhancing the year-round use and safety of all navigable and frozen waterways including various retention ponds by education, enforcement of respective laws, acts, by-laws and regulations, and to further provide technical and advisory support to both internal and external agencies.
