Types of Flooding in Drumheller

Overland Flooding

Overland flooding happens when water overflows the Red Deer River, Rosebud River or Michichi Creek banks due to rain or extensive volumes of melted snow. This is a type of flood that results from the level of water outside of your dwelling rising, allowing water to enter your home.

Wastewater

Water on flooded streets or high groundwater may drain into the sanitary sewer system. This overloads the sanitary sewer pipes and can force sewage back through the sewer line and into your basement.

Stormwater

When the Red Deer River, Rosebud River or Michichi Creek rise, water can flow back into the storm water pipe system. Water may spill back onto streets or basements through stormwater drains.
