Elevated Water Levels in Local Rivers

Alberta Environment has indicated that due to the rainfall in the province, the Paddle and Pembina Rivers are showing elevated levels.
 
The Pembina River has reached its peak and is not expected to have any further increases in water level in the coming days.

The Paddle River continues to rise slowly downstream of the Paddle Reservoir in response to increased flows from the Little Paddle and other local streams and rivers.  Alberta Environment is monitoring the Paddle Reservoir and does not expect the reservoir will spill with the forecasted precipitation over the next few days.
 
We ask residents to use caution around the river as bank stability is reduced during high water events.  Debris and undercurrents pose significant dangers.  Please do not allow children to play near flooded waterways.
 
For more information, visit rivers.alberta.ca.  More information will be shared as it becomes available.

Report flooded or washed out roads to Public Works at 780-674-2619.  Do not attempt to drive through flooded or washed local County roads as this may cause personal injury and property damage.
