Spring Runoff Potential for Saskatchewan
For more information visit the Water Security Agency.
Communities and residents in the projected high runoff zone should begin to prepare for potential spring runoff.
Flooding of a home, business or infrastructure such as a water treatment facility can have devastating and long-term consequences. The Province of Saskatchewan will continue to provide support and advice to your community.
If you are an administrative official and your community requires assistance to prepare for the potential spring runoff, including ordering flood supplies and equipment, please contact the Ministry of Government Relations, Emergency Management and Fire Safety at: (306) 787-9563.
Steps you can take to prepare
Each year, the Government of Saskatchewan’s Water Security Agency will release its forecast for the upcoming spring runoff. Although the forecast is a general guide for large areas, it may identify any areas where there is a potential threat of higher than normal water levels.
The best way to meet the challenges of spring runoff is to be well prepared.
