Levels continue to fall in the South Saskatchewan River.

City of Medicine Hat Emergency Management director Merrick Brown is expecting levels to continue to drop.

Brown says there is no threat of a flood right now.

Brown says, “During 2013, we were well over 5000 cubic metres per second.  So, we’re higher than the previous years at this time of year, with a recent peak of 950 (cubic metres per second).  So to put things into perspective, we’ve actually dropped down to about 740-745 cubic metres per second right now.”

Brown says city crews are continuing to prepare mitigation measures out of an abundance of caution.
