this document is one of several that have been, or are being conducted for the International Joint Commission (IJC). These studies have been commissioned subsequent to the occurrence of the "Flood of the Century" in 1997 that caused massive damages in the Red River Valley. Fortunately, the City of Winnipeg escaped the major damage that could have occurred if the capacity of the flood protection works had been exceeded, or if there had been failures in one or more of the flood protection structures. Nevertheless, the event demonstrated that the protection is limited, and the purpose of this study is to investigate that concern
