The Water Security Agency has released their preliminary spring runoff outlook for 2017, and it’s showing that most of the province is expected to see below-normal runoff levels this spring.

WSA Spokesman Patrick Boyle says most of the province received below-normal snowfall, and lost some of the snowpack during a warm stretch in January.

"This melting of snowpack, what it will do is saturate some of the soil surface so that could reduce any infiltration capacity available for any melt of that late season snow that may come," he said.

Boyle says the southeast corner of the province is the only exception, with runoff levels above normal possible in the Souris River basin below the Rafferty and Alameda Dams.

"They saw a near normal to well above normal snowpack going on closer to the southeast corner so we are expecting above normal run-off response," he said.

The agency’s spring runoff forecast will be released in March.
