GPREP Addressing Flooding In Region
Posted Date: 4/27/2018 8:45 PM
Extensive flooding in in the West Industrial Area and the Willowgrove mobile home subdivision in Hythe has resulted in a State of Local Emergency being declared by Village Council.

Pumping activity is underway to alleviate flooding in the Village and in Sexsmith.

Parents are asked to keep their children away from high-pressure hoses being used for pumping, from creeks and other areas where water has amassed. Sandbagging is occurring in priority areas in Sexsmith.

Rapidly melting snow is causing flooding in Hythe and Sexsmith, resulting in the closure of several local roads. Motorists are urged to obey road closure signage and follow the direction of local authorities.

Crews are on site in both communities and the Grande Prairie Regional Emergency Operations Centre is activated and is monitoring the situation in both municipalities.
Sand bags will be available for residents at the Sexsmith Public Works location at 10530-95 Ave.

The bridge on Township 722 west of Happy Trails RV has been closed. Township 722 will be closed between 116 St. and RR70 to local traffic only.
