Spring forecast calls for below normal runoff in most of Sask


Most of the Saskatchewan grainbelt is facing a below normal spring runoff.

Patrick Boyle with the Water Security Agency says runoff is forecast to be below normal because of low winter snowfall.

He says runoff may be normal to above normal in the far northwest and extreme southwest and southeast corners of the grainbelt.

Boyle says there may be some farm water supply issues in the driest areas, stretching from Moose Jaw through to Lucky Lake and Leader.

He does not expect any spring flooding and says water levels in the Qu’Appelle valley lakes will be lower than desirable.
