Each year around May 15th, we officially enter into flood season. The rainy Victoria Day weekend was a solid reminder of why. From mid-May until mid-July, Southern Alberta enters into it's annual rainy period. Municipalities and the Province ramp up flood monitoring and have their flood mitigation tools at the ready.
The City of Calgary is doing a number of things to ensure that Calgarians are prepared for the worst. Recently, flood information sessions for the Bow and Elbow Rivers were well attended by Calgarians. Regular communication to residents in the form of a newsletter is also part of the program. The City's newsletter has a lot of great information including up-to-date flood monitoring with the day's flow rates on both rivers, informative videos, information on events and other relevant information. We highly encourage you to check it out!
