Spring is on its way, but the water came to the CPR dam four days earlier than expected.
As a result, the dam was flooded out last week. Colin Prang, manager of engineering with the City of Moose Jaw, said the dam could handle a flow of 10 cubic meters per second. On Tuesday, water was flowing at 19. Two days prior, water was flowing at 0.3 cubic meters per second two days before.
“It came pretty fast,” said Prang, adding that the water started to flow around 3 a.m. last Tuesday.
