CITY PREPS FOR RISING WATERS
As a result of heavy rainfall in Alberta last week, the City of Prince Albert is preparing for a rise in the North Saskatchewan River. Alberta Environment estimates that approximately 30 to 80 millimetres of rain fell in parts of central and northern Alberta, causing the North Saskatchewan River to rise by more than three metres near Edmonton. The Water Security Agency anticipates Prince Albert will begin seeing a rise in water levels Tuesday evening and expects the full swell to reach our Beautiful Gateway City by 8 p.m. on Wednesday. Water expected to swell by up to two metres. The City of Prince Albert is asking residents to avoid activity on the river due to increased water flow and possible debris. They’ve also taken precautionary measures to protect the dam at Little Red River Park.
