City continues to warn about high water levels and potential flooding

·         Rain continues within the Campbell River watershed, and the lake and river levels are still high, so potential for flooding remains, especially during high tide.

·         Currently, localized flooding has subsided and all roads in the potential flooding area remain open. Crews will continue to monitor roads and set out barricades to mark water on roads, or close roads, if necessary.

·         People with property in the potential flood zone along the Campbell River (between Willow and Maple streets and in the low-lying area bordered by Redwood, Petersen and 16th Ave.) should continue to monitor the situation and take precautionary measures to protect their property.

·         Sand and sandbags are available through the Dogwood Operations Centre to assist in shoring up the river bank if water levels continue to rise. People must fill their own sandbags and should bring along a shovel to 385 S. Dogwood Street.

·         Emergency calls for water, sewer or road service, please phone 250-286-4033 during regular work hours, 250-287-7444after hours.

·         We are continuing to monitor lake and river flows with BC Hydro and will provide updates as more information becomes available.

·         People should expect river levels to be high for up to two weeks after this storm system passes. Please be extra cautious of rivers running higher and faster than normal.
