Below Normal Runoff Expected from Souris Basin in Canada

The Saskatchewan Water Security Agency issued their first flood forecast of the year this week. The prognosis: the Souris River basin in Canada seems likely to have below normal runoff in the spring of 2016. The forecast assumes average amounts of precipitation over the next three months. Also included in the report was a survey on the current levels of the Canadian reservoirs.

  • Rafferty Reservoir: Elevation — 549.5 meters above sea level ( ~14.5 feet below maximum allowable).
  • Alameda Reservoir: Elevation — 561 meters above sea level ( ~19.5 feet below maximum allowable).
