Drumheller isn't the only community experiencing flooding because of the snow melt.
The Village of Beiseker is still in a state of emergency because of overland flooding that threatens residential areas. The hamlet of Rosebud received a shipment of sandbags from Wheatland County to protect buildings.
Kneehill County has experienced a lot of overland flooding, which has forced the closure of a number of rural roads.
"We've got roads that are barricaded off because of overland flooding," reported Reeve Jerry Wittstock. "It's not to do with frozen culverts or anything like that, we've just got a lot of snow and the holes in the pipes are not big enough."
"Anything that we know of that's affected is being signed (and) it is being barricaded off," he outlined. "We've actually run out of barricades: we can't do anymore, but we're doing what we can to protect our traveling public and our residents."
Once the water drains away, Wittstock expects the county to be busy assessing and repairing damage.
"Three days from now I think the snow will be gone and waters will recede and this will be a bad memory," he offered. "We're going to have infrastructure damage: I would assume there's going to be some erosion around bridge abutments, so there will be engineers involved making sure everything is safe to travel across."
