Calgary Flood 2005

Calgary flood June 2005. The following photos were submitted by local Calgary residents during the 2005 June flood. A major flood in June 2005 caused the reservoir to exceed its capacity. The excess spilled over the dam and into the river. The flow downstream increased from its normal average of 20-30 cubic metres per second up to 350 cubic metres per second. As a result, some roads were closed and 2,000 Calgarians who lived downstream were evacuated. The Glenmore water treatment plant had difficulty treating the heavily silted water, which caused the municipal government to issue water restrictions. The Alberta government estimated the floods in the area to be the heaviest flooding in at least two centuries. Although the experts thought the 2005 flood was a record flood the 2013 flood was much worse. See Wiki for Calgary 2005 Flood.
