High Streamflow Advisory And Road Closure Update

LETHBRIDGE: No one is building an ark...yet!  However, the rain continues to create problems around the region.  In Lethbridge, the Pavan Park access road is down to one lane because of coulee slumpage and the access road to the Water Treatment plant and boat launch at the Whoop Up underpass are closed until further notice.

Alberta Environment has continued a high stream flow advisory for every stream and river in south-west Alberta, with water levels continuing to rise on most waterways. The list includes the Milk River and its tributaries, the Belly, Castle and Crowsnest Rivers, as well as Lee Creek, Pincher Creek, Drywood Creek, Waterton River both  upstream and downstream of Waterton Dam and the Oldman River downstream of the Oldman Dam.  As of 3:00 Wednesday, the outflow from the Oldman Dam was 478 cubic metres per second, with no further increases expected.

 Between 6:00 Tuesday night and 3:00 Wednesday afternoon, 79-mm had fallen in the Milk River basin and 55-mm on the eastern slopes of the Rockies. Stream are expected to continue to rise. Although no major flooding is expected, there could be minor flooding in low-lying areas. For further information, you can check out the Alberta Environment website for up-dates on conditions: http://www.environment.alberta.ca/forecasting/advisories/110607c.pdf

Drivers also need to be cautious on country roads as shoulders are very soft and may give was into the ditch.
