The Water Security Agency issued an advisory for high water levels on the Northern Saskatchewan River for next week.

Depending on location, water levels could rise one to three metres.

The excess flow comes after Edmonton’s recent rainfall.

Peak flow is expected to hit the Alberta-Saskatchewan border on Tuesday or Wednesday then continue heading east. It will reach the Battlefords on or around Thursday then make its way to Prince Albert on Saturday or Sunday.

The advisory said widespread flooding isn’t expected but residents and buildings along the river are advised to take the necessary precautions.
