Sioux Valley Dakota Nation Community Flood Preparation Notice (03.13.19)

Sioux Valley residents, the spring season is upon us and our community needs to start preparing for the possibility of flooding that may occur within our community. As some of you are aware from watching the news, we could possibly see 2011 flooding/water levels. With the nice weather we are having this could accelerate and increase flood forecasts.

All the homes that are in the high-water table should begin preparing as personal belongings may be compromised. By moving personal belonging out of basements, putting belongings in plastic containers and placing them 2 feet above the ground should be sufficient enough.

Please start preparing your homes as we don’t want community members to be losing any belongings if a flood occurs.

Thank You

Chief & Council
