Fire Chief Bruce Wade is advising the public that a misinterpreted message concerning rising water levels was inaccurate.

"It's totally false. This release was interpreted wrong. They are monitoring the flows of water within the Red Deer, as well as Rosebud Creek. There is no 3 meter increase expected," relayed the Fire Chief. "If there are any increases (in the water level) they will let us know."

"I've been monitoring the river and creek all day. The river has not risen and has not gone down either.  The Rosebud Creek had come up about 2 inches this morning and stayed there all day. It has not risen and they don't expect it to have a significant increase in the river. They are still monitoring it." added Fire Chief Bruce Wade.

We advise people to stay away from low lying areas and to call the Town of Drumheller's emergency number 403-820-2156.

DrumFM will continue to follow this and will provide updates as they become available.
