The Water Security Agency is advising the public there are some minor out of bank flows from the recent storm system.
The agency says Burntout Brook near Arborfield rose sharply last night, peaking near 44 cubic metres per second, which is a 1 in 50 year flow for this area. The Pasqua River at Highway 9 is flowing at 33 cubic meters per second which is greater than a 1 in 50 year event as it continues to rise. The Torch River near Love is at 42 cubic seconds, and is not yet at a flood stage but continuing to rise.
Rainfall with isolated thunderstorms could bring another 10-25 mm to central and east central areas of the province today. Over the last two days a number of areas have reported precipitation amounts in excess of 80 mm.
Direct rainfall over Buffalo Pound Lake, Last Mountain, and Crooked Lakes resulted in these lakes rising slightly above the upper end of their desirable operating ranges. They are still well below levels where flood damages would occur.
