Crews have been working around the clock to clean up the flood damage in High River, and volunteers will be returning to the community once more on Monday.
Streets are now littered with piles of drywall, insulation, and belongings which were all soaked with flood waters in late June.
Heavy machinery is being brought in to help clear up the mess.
The Town of High River was the hardest hit in June’s flooding, with few homes untouched by the disaster.
Many from Calgary and other areas flocked to the area over the weekend to help the residents there clean up and retrieve their irreplaceable items.
The shuttle buses to take volunteers to the community continue to run this week.
Buses will be leaving from the Mount Royal University and Bishop O’Byrne High School in Shawnessy every two hours starting at 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
They drop off at the Mission Possible 2 staging grounds in High River.
