High Streamflow Advisory for the Churchill River System

June 8, 2020 -- The Water Security Agency is expanding the High Streamflow Advisory for the Churchill River System to include the headwater areas in the Meadow Lake area. The public is advised to stay clear of fast flowing water and potentially unstable banks during the high streamflow period and be aware of threats to any buildings or infrastructure close to these water bodies.  This area includes the Beaver River and its tributaries, including Horsehead, Rabbit, Morin, and Alcott creeks and the Makwa and Meadow rivers. 

Between June 3-7, the area extending from Glaslyn up to Cold Lake, including western portions of Meadow Lake Provincial Park, received 90-120 mm of rainfall. This is resulting in stream flows and lake levels that are above to well above normal with most continuing to increase. Some localized flooding in low-lying areas is expected.
