Releases Top 3,000

Posted: Updated:

Water releases from Canadian dams have topped three thousand cubic feet per second.

It's the highest releases from Rafferty, Alameda, and Boundary Dams since the fall of 2011 when the reservoirs were getting back to normal after the record flooding of that year.

As of Sunday afternoon, water flow from the Canadian dams totaled 3,034 CFS.

The releases are dropping the level of the reservoirs in the Estevan area to make room for an expected very high runoff from snow melt - once the melting actually begins.

In the US, Lake Darling Dam has been releasing 28-hundred CFS since Friday afternoon.

And since the higher Canadian flows have yet to reach Lake Darling, the level of that lake is also still dropping.

It's now about one foot above the desired level of 14-hundred-93 feet.
