While the flood risk continues to subside around Saskatchewan, there's still water across the highways in a number of areas.

On Wednesday, Highway 2 had water covering a section about 10 kilometres south of Wakaw. There was also water on the highway south of the village of Sagehill.

Sections of highway in the North Battleford, Tisdale and Prince Albert areas were also under water and in some cases closed.

More details are posted on the government's Highway Hotline web page.

Meanwhile, the province's Water Security Agency says water levels are generally declining across the agricultural portion of the province and the flood situation is improving.
