With spring weather finally upon us, residents should be aware of the river and stream conditions in their area. Alberta Environment’s Spring Stream Flow Advisory is in effect for this area, and local monitoring stations are seeing rising water levels in many area.
Significant snow packs and increasing temperatures, water levels around the County are expected to rise in the coming days. With this, water volume may increase in many area culverts, resulting in flooding and impacting County roads. The following is a current listing of roads currently closed/barricaded until repair crews are able to address the damages:
- Township Road 552 between Range Road 14-15
- Township Road 574 between Range Road 82-83
- Range Road 71 north of Township Road 580
- Range Road 71 south of Highway 18
- Township Road 592 between Range Road 71 & 72
- Range Road 61 between Township Road 552 & 554
- Range Road 54 south of Township Road 563
Lac Ste. Anne County in conjunction with Alberta River Forecast Center are monitoring the spring runoff within our County. Currently these areas consist of the Little Paddle River and the Paddle River. As of Monday, April 23, 2018, water levels on these two rivers have dropped.
Residents are asked to please report any overland flooding by calling the County’s Answering Service Toll free line at 1-866- 880-5722. Try to avoid travelling on roads covered in water, and be cautious of rising water.
