Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 -THE LETHMIOQE HERALD Monday, April 1, 1M4 When spring conies Can floods be far behind? By STEVE KRUEGER The Preu As surely as spring follows winter, the heavy snows which covered the Prairies and northern British Columbia this winter, now are causing concern that major flooding will occur in many areas. In northern B.C.. Prince George staggered through the winter with more than 140 inches of snow, half a Toot more than the previous record. In mountain areas surrounding the city of snow depths are even greater, says the provincial water rights branch. Water concentrations in the deep snow packs are high this year as well, adding to the potential for flooding in much of the Fraser River watershed. Hugh Horner, Alberta's deputy premier and minister responsible for the Disaster Services Organization told the Alberta legislature March 22 the DSO anticipates flooding on two major river systems. Dr. Horner said the Vermilion-Battle River region in eastern Alberta and the Paddle-Pembina River system west of Edmonton are of "primary concern" to the DSO and the provincial government. In Edmonton, the winter's snowfall didn't match the all-time seasonal record, but a record has been set for the depth of snow still on the ground at the end of March. Almost three feet of snow remained in Edmonton, while one year ago, most snow had already melted. Southern the province near Medicine Hat and Lethbridge were clear of snow by early March, but the central and northern regions remained under a deep cover. In Saskatchewan, all areas except the southwestern corner of the province have snow depths of above to much above normal. Resources Minister Sidney Green of Manitoba told the legislature the snow pack is slowly melting in most areas of the province, but record and near-record snows in southern Manitoba are threatening to cause wide-spread flooding. Premier Ed Schreyer told the legislature the Manitoba government has stockpiled nearly 1.2 million sandbags for controlling flooding in the province. In the event sandbag stocks are used up, as was the case in British Columbia's floods in 1972, civil defence organizations from other parts of Canada and the United States will be asked to supply bags. While Dr. Horner said policies are being developed to cover operational costs of flood fighting and compensation for flood damages, Saskatchewan has al- ready committed its reserves to compensate farmers for possible flood losses. The worst buijd-up of snow depth is around Swift Current and Kindersley, north to Meadow Lake Provincial Park, and east to Melfort, Indian Head and Estevan. The far north and eastern parts of the province have above-average snow depths, says a department statement. But they are not as bad as the central region. The Alberta Disaster Services Organization is prepared to coordinate existing provincial equipment and manpower to fight any floods this spring, DSO executive director Ernie Tyler said recently. Alberta Government Telephones has pledged complete co-operation in setting up communications wherever it is needed, and the departments of highways and public works are completing inventories on manpower and equipment locations. In Saskatchewan, the Emergency Measures Organization is co-ordinating planning with other government departments, as well as with city staffs in both Regina and Saskatoon. While the deepest snow packs are reported west of both cities, snow depths around the cities are 150 to 200 per cent deeper than average packs, and flood could occur if the weather warms too rapidly.

Why pay the top rates for long-distance telephone calls? Try dialing direct instead of phoning person-to-person. It can save you time. And it will certainly save you money!

DDD calls from 100 to Even less for "Sunday Half-a-Buck" and "Night Owl" calls -100 to 500. CALLS TO CANADIAN POINTS OUTSIDE ALBERTA Example: From Calgary or Edmon- ton, a person-to-person call to Toronto is DDD for the same three minutes only or even less, depending on when you phone. And DDD calls under three minutes can mean a still bigger saving. IF DDD SERVICE IS NOT AVAILABLE WHERE YOU MAKE YOUR CALL your operator will place station-to-station calls at the low DDD rates. They do not apply to calls from hotels, motels or pay phones, or to other types of operator- assisted calls. In touch with a bargain TV MONDAY MOVIE MYSTERY: The Girl M Ike Late, Late Ch. I.
