Flood and River Monitoring Program

The City of Calgary's river engineers keeps a watchful eye on Calgary's watersheds.

This involves monitoring:

Current river status
Check Alberta's River Monitoring Centre for Bow and Elbow River flow information
  • Precipitation levels
  • Reservoir and lake levels
  • Stream flow rates
  • Depth of snowpack
  • Soil moisture
  • Weather models

We work with partner organizations, irrigation districts, internal groups and other municipalities to understand watershed conditions that may impact Calgary.

Depending on the watershed conditions, we may make changes to Glenmore Reservoir operations and work with partners such as TransAlta Utilities to respond to the situation. And if necessary, we will enact emergency response measures.
