Overland Flooding Watch

Lac Ste. Anne County has experienced heavy rain over the past two (2) days, and as a result of the significant rainfall, there has been isolated overland flooding reported.

Lac Ste. Anne County Public Works department is hard at work checking the low lying areas to assess road conditions and damages throughout today and for the balance of the week. At this time, we would ask our residents and the travelling public to be cautious when travelling in low lying areas in all areas of the County. The overland flooding is not confined to any one area in the County. Culverts are working to pass the water through as designed, and any blocked culverts should be reported to the County office as soon as possible so that the culvert can be cleared in a timely fashion on a priority basis.

If you do encounter a flooded road, do not attempt to drive through the water with your vehicle. The depth of water in any flooded area is not known at this time, therefore making any crossing unsafe. With enough water, a vehicle will begin to float above the roadway, and therefore out of the control of the operator and placing the occupants in extreme danger. Please do not place yourself in unnecessary danger by attempting an unsafe crossing of a flooded roadway, but rather take a detour route around the affected area.

Nature will have to take its course in removing most of the water, so your patience is asked for, and required as Lac Ste. Anne County staff work to mitigate the areas that have been affected. Your cooperation as we work through this significant water event is greatly appreciated.
