At the time of its initial construction in 1968 the Red River Floodway was the second largest ever earth moving project in the world, second only to the Panama Canal. Since its construction and expansion beginning in 2005 it has prevented tens of billions of dollars in flood damages in Winnipeg. This full day technical tour will include stops at the inlet gates, along the channel, and the outlet structure. The tour will also include a stop at the St. Andrews Lock and Dam on the Red River, the largest “Camere” style structure in the world. Both the Red River Floodway and the St. Andrews Dam are National Historic Civil Engineering Sites (CSCE). 

Lunch is included at the Half Moon Drive In, a well-loved Manitoba institution.

PPE requirements include a safety vest and comfortable closed toed walking shoes.

The Keeyask Project is a 695-megawatt (MW) hydroelectric generating station developed in a partnership between Manitoba Hydro and four Manitoba First Nations: Tataskweyak Cree Nation, War Lake First Nation, York Factory First Nation, and Fox Lake Cree Nation. The station was commissioned in 2022, and adds approximately 4,400 gigawatt-hours of renewable electricity per year to Manitoba Hydro’s total generation supply. That’s enough electricity to power 400,000 homes!
