Regional District distributing sand bags

The District will send sand bags to the following sites:

  • One Island Provincial Park
  • Tomslake Fire Hall
  • Tupper Hall
  • Kelly Lake Community Center
  • At the CRS yard – where Hwy 52 east meets Hwy 2
  • Ivor Johnson Park in Hasler
  • The “Old” truck stop near Wildmare Road

District officials say some spots in the south peace could receive anywhere from 80 to 115 mm in rain over the next 72 hours.

Although most river systems in the Peace have dropped back down to the water levels prior to the flood event on June 25‐28, soil conditions remain saturated and streams are expected to respond quickly to this additional precipitation. River levels in the region are expected to rise, with the potential for high flows from Friday into the weekend. The amount that rivers rise will depend on the amount and location of rainfall received.
