  • Spring Flooding

    April 24, 2018: Due to higher than normal spring runoff conditions, residents are advised that roads could be at risk for flooding or washout.  Please slow down and drive with caution.  Do not drive through flooded roads, due to risk of hidden hazards and please do not drive around road closed barriers.  Anyone who is situated in areas that have experienced overland flooding or ice jam activity in the past, are advised to be cautious of rising water levels over the coming days. The Big Lakes County Public Works Department is currently inspecting all road infrastructure.  Should residents feel that their homes are at risk due to rising water, they are advised to contact Big Lakes County at (780) 523-5955, and crews will be dispatched to investigate the situation.  Sandbags are also available at the Big Lakes County Administration Office, 5305-56 Street High Prairie. As conditions change, we recommend that residents watch the Big Lakes County website (www.biglakescounty.ca) for updates.  If you see water running over the road please report it immediately.
