The City of Calgary is ready for the 2024 flood season



Calgary's high river flow season begins on May 15, and the city is prepared for potential flooding with completed annual flood preparations and round-the-clock monitoring of river conditions, weather forecasts, and snowpack melting. This year's snowpack is average to slightly below average, indicating an ordinary risk of flooding. The city is ready to respond to keep citizens safe and protect critical infrastructure, services, the environment, and the economy if the outlook changes. Flooding can occur at any time, primarily due to heavy rainfall upstream of Calgary. Climate change will intensify flooding and drought risks in the future, making resiliency a high priority for the city. Calgarians are advised to understand their flood risk, prepare for potential flooding, and stay informed about river conditions and any advisories.


To help Calgarians be prepared, The City also has flood preparation tools and resources available at calgary.ca/floodInfo.
