The Town of Drumheller will be watching the rivers and creeks very closely through Drumheller.
 
This past weekend saw an ice jam on the Rosebud Creek that caused localized flooding.
 
"The Town has been in contact (with the Dickson Dam) and this was completely a localized issue. The Dickson Dam has lots of storage, they are not releasing water and there's nothing involving the Dickson Dam at all," said mayor Terry Yemen.
 
He added there was a grate that was frozen shut on Riverside Drive and town crews will be working on it as soon as the river goes down. 
 
"Basically it's a stand down situation right now, but continuing to monitor," noted Yemen.
 
Approximatey four acreages were flooded along Highway 10X and the Mayor says the Town and utility companies are working with them.
 
Yemen stresses that residents and especially kids should not be walking on the river and creek banks as they can become unstable.
