Water levels have started to ease off in the Estevan area.
Greg Hoffart, with the local RM, says both the weather and the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority are now working in their favour.
"We've recently received good news from Sask Water in that they're going to start to reduce the flow that's coming out of Boundary Dam reservoir."
He says roughly seven homes, just south of Estevan, went under water this week.
Over one hundred rural municipalities are still under a state of emergency due to spring flooding.
David Marit is president of the Saskatchewan Association of Rural
Municipalities. He knew damage was bad, but had no idea it would be so
"We've had reports from some municipalities where the damage is going to be...two million dollars," Marit said.
It is a very nervous time for residents in about 25 homes in the Rural Municipality of Estevan who are on stand-by for evacuation.
The southeast RM declared a state of emergency as of 9 a.m. Wednesday morning and advised affected residents to be ready to evacuate as the water rises.
Kelly LaFrentz is the local reeve and says residents are furiously sandbagging as the waters rise.
The City of Regina is sharing its sandbags with you.
Now that water levels have dropped along Wascana Creek, crews have started taking temporary dikes down and are allowing the public to come pick remaining sandbags up for their own personal use.
You can get them at two locations: 15th Avenue and Pasqua Street or Dewdney Avenue and Wascana Creek.
The City just asks you to take the sandbags from the dikes, not from the pallets.
You’ll be able to load them into your vehicle until 8 p.m. Thursday, and again on Friday from 8 a.m until 8 p.m.
Regina's mound of snow at the snow dump, combined with the warmer weather has meant bad news in the north east.
Just off Fleet Street near the Co-op Cardlock on Turvey Street, a massive puddle covers the road. The water is seeping over from the snow dump; where piles and piles of snow laced with dirt and soil still stands.
Helene Henning-Hill, manager of sewage and drainage operations with the City of Regina says someone replaced the lids on the catch basins in the area, which caused the water the back up and flood the road way.
Saskatchewan's flood watchers are telling the public that all areas seem to be improving.
"We're achieving our objectives. We're on time, we're on track, we're on target and we're ready for whatever is left to come," said Colin King with Emergency Management for the province.
Things are improving in all areas, or already over for Regina and Moose Jaw, according to King.
The flooding picture is improving in Saskatchewan, but a number of areas in the Saskatchewan will still see waters rise over the next few weeks.
"The majority of the province is now seeing a recession of water," said Patrick Boyle, with the Water Security Agency (WSA).
"There are still some areas that have localized issues, but in the southern areas, the majority of the local inflows are declining . Flows in the Wascana Creek and the Qu'Appelle at Lumsden have peaked and are beginning to decline. But that water is still workings its way to Manitoba."
With flood waters inching higher in Lumsden nearby farmers grow more and more concerned.
Wayne Gienow is a co-owner of Lincoln Gardens, a vegetable farm and marketplace located on the road between Lumsden and Craven in the Qu'Appelle Valley. This is the third time in the last four years that the majority of their 140 acres of growing land has fallen under massive amounts of flood water or rain.
Just days after the Sakimay First Nation declared a state of emergency, nearby Crooked Lake rose by nearly five feet.
Chief Lynn Acoose says around 100 cabin and cottages surrounding the lake are now flooded out, but so far, the water hasn't reached homes on the first nation.
Acoose says the water hit its highest level over the weekend.
With flood waters officially receding in most of Saskatchewan as of Monday, the Qu'Appelle Valley north of Regina still faced challenges in farmer's fields and on local roads.
The Water Security Agency admitted in a morning update that the flood threat overall is falling. The valley and towns inside it like Lumsden could see sustained water levels as the Wascana Creek system empties into the area. Its peak flow levels are still expected to stay well below the 2011 mark.
