People downstream from the Gardiner Dam are once again preparing for flooding, as the province lets out water in anticipation of an influx from Alberta.
The South Saskatchewan River is expected to rise up to two metres as the releases jump from 800 cubic metres per second to 2,000 cubic metres per second.
People living in the path of all that water say they have been flooded out too many times in the last seven years, and are fed up.
Walter Hamm believes the Water Security Agency chooses to flood people downstream instead of using the last three metres of space in the Gardiner Dam.
"That agency continues to function, those people continue to get paid salaries on a monthly basis, and we get flooded every time there is an event," he told CBC News. "They could today stop this flood, but they won't."
On Sunday the province told CBC News it had been looking into the complaints. A government spokesperson told CBC in an email that representatives from the Water Security Agency and Government Relations had been diligent in communicating with landowners along the South Saskatchewan River.
It said the government is taking every step possible to hold back as much water as possible without compromising the structure of Gardiner Dam. "If Gardiner were to be compromised, the flooding event experienced would be extreme," said the spokesperson in the email.
