Town Encouraging Residents to Stay Home if Feeling Unwell

Town Staff to Inform Residents of River Monitoring Status

Town of High River staff are actively monitoring Highwood River levels and flows.

  • During peak hazard season in May and June, LED river monitoring signs are placed at high traffic areas in the Town to ensure the community is informed.
  • Town staff monitor data specific to the Highwood River.
  • The four stages of river monitoring that are used Province-wide are:
  • Normal - The water's volume and flow rate are within the normal range for Spring run-off.
  • High Stream Flow Advisory - Stream levels are rising or expected to rise rapidly, but no major flooding is expected. Minor flooding in low-lying areas is possible.
  • Flood Watch - Stream levels are rising and will approach or may exceed the riverbanks. Flooding of areas adjacent to these streams may occur. While no action is required, it is always important to be prepared for an emergency.
  • Flood Warning - Rising stream levels will result in flooding of areas adjacent to the streams affected.

In case of an emergency, residents will receive automatic notifications from Alberta Emergency Alerts on wireless devices. Check the Town's river monitoring webpage for more information and updates.

Residential Garbage Pick Up Fast Facts

Did you know the Town of High River provides automated garbage collection services to single-family homes every week? Check out the tips below on residential garbage collection:

  • Garden waste is prohibited in residential garbage unless it is bagged.
  • Residential garbage collection is only for household waste, and everything must be bagged.
  • Overflowing garbage runs the risk of debris falling off as the bin goes over the truck. This becomes the responsibility of the homeowner to clean up.
  • Bins must be out by 7 am on collection day.
  • Bins need to have at least three feet around them to allow the truck to grab them safely.
