There has been some localized flooding in the RM of Corman Park as a result of the weekend rain.
The Saskatchewan Watershed Authority's Patrick Boyle says the Authority had more than a dozen calls this morning (Monday) seeking assistance from the Corporation's Emergency Flood Damage Reduction Program.
In the meantime though, flows on the North and South Saskatchewan Rivers will be rising as a result of rain in Alberta.
The South Saskatchewan from the Alberta border to Lake Diefenbaker will rise about two meters.
Outflows from the Lake will increase river levels in Saskatoon by about 30 centimeters at the Weir and 60 centimeters through the Moon Lake area, where there's been flooding in the past.
But Boyle says there shouldn't be any flooding issues as a result of this release like has been experienced in past years, however some irrigators may need to move their pumps up the banks.
