Director’s Update June 13, 2022

Yes, we are in the time of year that floods and rising lake levels are watched with meticulous eyes.

Sand bags are available at the Lardeau Valley Community Club, Kaslo Emergency hall (Fire Dept) and soon to be a location in the Ainsworth/Woodbury area. We know the lake has hit 1751, likely to hit 1752 and finger’s crossed, not much higher than that as we will see flooding at 1753.Creeks are also peaking or surpassing their banks. Its all hands and eyes on deck, while we have folks stationed across the RD watching those known concern areas, please do keep your eyes on our water ways- from a safe distance. If you witness flooding, erosion, changes that are odd, please do not hesitate to reach out to the provincial flood and debris hotline1800 663 3456
