Our river engineers keep an eye on Calgary's watersheds. For flooding and drought, this involves monitoring the following:
Rain and snow
River and creek flows
Water use and demand
We work with the Alberta River Forecast Centre, irrigation groups, internal groups and other municipalities to understand watershed conditions that may impact Calgary.
Depending on conditions, we may make operational changes to the Glenmore Reservoir, and we also work with partners such as TransAlta. And if necessary, we will start taking other actions, following our emergency response plans.
