BC water supply bulletin

The Environment Ministry has issued an information bulletin today, which shows June rainfall eased water supply challenges, in many regions of the province.

 

However, the exception is the north, where drought level for rivers is given as generally level three or very dry.

June rainfall amounts were near normal in most areas of B.C., but the bulletin gives the notable exception in this case as the Fort St. John area.

As reported earlier, Fort St. John received only 14.3 millimeters of precipitation, which is just 20 percent of the 71.4 Environment Canada, local area monthly average.

Things didn’t improve much during the first third of this month, with only 7.8 millimeters in the first eleven days.

However, that may be about to change, with an additional 3.2 millimeters recorded yesterday, another 13.2 this morning and showers in the forecast, for each of the five days after tomorrow.
