The Water Security Agency’s latest forecast sees a below to well below normal spring runoff in most of southern Saskatchewan.
Patrick Boyle with the Water Security Agency says the one exception is a pocket in the southwest corner near Eastend and Val Marie where runoff will be above normal.
He says well above normal snow in March and a late melt could result in a rapid melt and some potential flood issues but so far no major flooding is expected.
He says there may be some farm water supply issues which could intensify and expand to additional areas this spring.
Boyle says much of northern Saskatchewan, especially around Hudson Bay and north of Prince Albert will see above normal spring runoff.
There may be some localized flooding in the far northern grainbelt but widespread flooding is not expected.
