DRUMHELLER, AB – (June 14, 2022) – With the forecasted rainfall, and out of an abundance of caution, we have resources prepared to ensure residents of the Drumheller Valley are safe.
Less rain has been received on the upper Red Deer River basin than forecasted in the last 24 hours, and as such, exceedingly high flows above Dickson Dam are no longer expected. However, the High Streamflow Advisory in the Drumheller area remains. Due to this, we want to share emergency preparedness resources to ensure the safety of our residents.
