The Kiwanis building is a priority for the Wakamow Valley Authority in preparing the organization's facilities for flooding conditions, according to acting CEO Margaret Moran.

According to the recent March forecast from the Saskatchewan Water Security Agency (WSA), Moose Jaw is likely to see a very high amount of runoff and flooding.

The city will hold a public information meeting on March 21 at 7 p.m. at the Lillooet Fire Station, 750 Lillooet St. W.  Members from the city's public works department and the emergency measures organization (EMO) will report on flood preparation activites and will be available to answer any questions.

In a release, the City of Moose Jaw EMO stated the various departments are working to provide measures to prepare for the possibility of flooding.

Those measures include filling sandbags for the targeted areas, ensuring all pumping equipment is in top operating condition and removing logs from the Third Avenue Dam.

Other measures include removing the snowpack from ditches in certain strategic locations in the city, thawing catch basins in the city and receiving updates from the WSA.
