The provincial government has released another Spring Thaw Outlook.

Our relatively dry winter should put us in a good position to steer clear of spring floods, although officials are saying a major storm in early April could put Manitoba at a greater risk.

The Red River Valley continues to be a focal point in Manitoba for potential high-water situations.

Water levels are expected to be similar to the spring of 2019, as forecasters are expecting a significant inflow of water from the northern United States, according to Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler.

With the province already devoting so many emergency resources to the fight against COVID-19, the minister assures Manitobans there are contingency plans in place in the event of a high-water situation.

The entire 2020 Spring Thaw Outlook report will be available here.
