There shouldn't be any major flooding this spring in Saskatchewan, according to the province's Water Security Agency (WSA).

A preliminary report from the WSA last week showed more than half of the province is currently pegged to receive below normal spring runoff.

Water Security Agency Spokesperson, Patrick Boyle, said the spring runoff outlook for the southwest area isn't as bad as the rest of the province.

The WSA report indicated anything south of Swift Current and Maple Creek is expected to get a near-normal runoff in the spring.

"It would be a pretty typical year," Boyle said. "Everything would be in channels, banks, things flowing like they would... Now there could be different pockets or different localized issues, which go one way or the other, but generally, across that area, it should be a typical year."

Boyle did add that the spring outlook could change pretty quickly if a large snowstorm swept through the area.

In early March and again in April (if winter is still continuing) the WSA is planning to put out another spring runoff report.
