Strathcona County is getting plenty of spring runoff.
An astounding 2500 sand bags and 650 tons of sand have been used in the county to prevent home damage.
Over 70 flooding concerns were brought forward recently with the rapid snow melt.
"We saw creek levels rise real quick and spilled banks in the north region. Our crews responded with quick action with sand bags for protecting homes," said director of transportation and agriculture services Ryan Wilson.
Good news, it looks like the levels have peaked.
The county has 36 daytime and 18 overnight staff working towards fixing the problems, including more than 515 reports of culvert issues.
"The alarming thing is how quickly it rose, we all left work Friday afternoon and everything was under control. By that evening the flooding had started. Thankfully, our staff has been through this before and we were able to react quickly to it," said mayor Rod Frank.
Creek levels are unpredictable and still could change.
People with flooding concerns are asked to phone 780-417-7100.
