Saskatchewan ready to assist residents threatened with flooding
REGINA - The Saskatchewan government is standing by to assist residents threatened by flooding.
Ken Cheveldayoff (SHEV'-uhl-DAY'-off), minister responsible for the Saskatchewan Water Security Agency, says the province will continue with a flood damage reduction program.
The program provides engineering and technical assistance to municipalities, and shares the cost of permanent and temporary flood prevention work.
Such work can include berms, culverts and lift stations.
Cheveldayoff says the government has provided $25 million since 2011 for flood prevention in communities across the province.
The Water Security Agency is calling for above normal or well above normal spring runoff in almost all of the southern half of the province.
