Flooding of the Red Deer and Rosebud Rivers in Drumheller will not affect the town's annual Spring Clean-up.
"We were worried about the back alleys and whether we would damage the back alleys going down there," confessed Tammy Nygaard, Manager of the Drumheller Regional Landfill. "We were hoping that maybe things would dry up a little bit (and) this week has been really nice and the back alleys are looking pretty good."
Nygaard admits they may have to alter their schedule a bit to accomodate Wayne and properties alongside Highway 10X because of the evacuation of residents and closure of the road by authorities.
"We'll start in East Coulee on Monday (Apr. 30) and then we'll see what happens," she told 99.5 Drum FM. "If it's (Rosebud River) come down and they can get in there then we'll do Wayne, but if not, then we'll just postpone Wayne and come back."
"We have that one last floater day," she explained. "Friday the 11th would be the floater day so, if we have to, we can come back and do Wayne on that day."
A schedule of where the town crews will be picking up unwanted items was sent out with utility bills.
