Floodwaters are slowly receding in three Saskatchewan communities which declared a state of emergency following heavy rain during the past few days.
Duane McKay, provincial commissioner of emergency management, says Estevan has improved substantially since the community was hit by 130 millimeters of rain on the weekend.
He says a lot of the water in low areas and in some houses is being pumped out.
McKay says water is out of the evacuated trailer park area in Estevan.
In Arborfield, he says the province has moved significant equipment and personnel to battle the floodwaters.
Plans will be drawn up to get people back in their homes and assess damage.
In Carrot River, he says officials are working to help the community resolve problems with its septic system.
