LETHBRIDGE: As the rain continues to pour down with no end in sight, the city has taken steps to try and prevent major flooding.
They have expanded sewers in trouble areas over the last few years and repaired storm outfalls this winter.
Water and Wastewater Manager Doug Kaupp acknowledged that while they've done a lot to deal with the issue, there's still no city in Canada that can handle every single storm.
He noted that in order to protect yourself, you need to make sure your down-spouts are down and test your sump-pump if you have one.
As of Tuesday at noon, Lethbridge had already received 20-millilitres of rain, with the number climbing as you head either south or east. Pincher Creek sits at 43-mm, Waterton Park Gate recorded 59-mm and Cardston has already counted 102-mm.
The current forecast is calling for either rain or showers everyday up to next Monday.
