Water Security Agency Warns of Heightened Risk Around Prince Albert
July 9, 2020 -- The Water Security Agency (WSA) is updating the public of rapidly increasing flows on the North Saskatchewan River around Prince Albert.
WSA is expecting 2000 cubic metres per second (m3/s) peak flow in Prince Albert by Friday, July 10, up from the original estimate of 1500 m3/s announced on July 2. This is mainly due to increased flows from Alberta combined with recent rainfall in the North Battleford region.
Residents living along these areas are reminded that high flows pose a safety risk and high water levels could damage property and infrastructure over the coming days. All users are additionally advised to use caution around the watercourses within the basin as swift moving water can pose a hazard and to take steps to protect property where necessary.
