Second Flood Outlook For 2015

The Manitoba government says the risk of flooding this spring is low in most areas of the province.
 
Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation's Hydrologic Forecast Centre has released its second flood outlook for 2015.
 
It says the spring snowmelt is over  and peak flows have passed in most of the Interlake, southern, and southwest areas of the province.
 
Hydrologic Forecasting and Water management director Fisaha Unduche says the same applies to the areas around the Duck Mountains and Riding Mountain.
 
"Those areas, the peak run-off is gone. Even if there is still a small amount of snow on the ground, we anticipate that that amount of snow will not generate significant run-off. The majority of run-off from that area is gone."
 
Unduche says there is still run-off left to come in northern areas. The flood outlook says northern areas have a minor to moderate flood risk.
 
Dauphin Lake is expected to peak between 855.6 to 856.3 feet, which is below the flood stage of 858 feet.
