The Saskatchewan government has launched a website tying together flood and weather forecasts, runoff data and other information to get the public prepared for this spring.
“As the March runoff forecast issued by Saskatchewan Watershed Authority illustrates, areas of the province are certain to experience spring flooding this year,” Weyburn MLA Dustin Duncan, the provincial minister responsible for the SWA, said in a release Monday.
The new site is expected to contain the most recent runoff advisories and forecasts, along with maps and charts, flood prevention tips, details on provincial assistance programs, emergency events and procedures and contact information.
Information will be added as it becomes available and updates will be made to the site as needed, the province said.
The SWA and the provincial ministry of corrections, public safety and policing developed and will maintain the site, the province said.
