The COTB states that the flooding situation can change very quickly and the City will continue to monitor and respond accordingly. There may be roads in and around the City not listed, that may be experiencing ponding and flooding.

The City would like to remind residents to exercise caution in and around area waterways and proceed with caution on roads with higher water levels, as the ditch may not be visible.

All City waterways are still being closely monitored. Once rivers and creeks recede, Infrastructure & Operations will commence any necessary road and trail repairs.
