Williams Lake, B.C. – With receding waters and a decreased risk of flooding, the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) has lifted the evacuation alert for the Nazko area. The State of Local Emergency has also been cancelled for CRD Electoral Area I. No evacuation alerts or orders are in effect within the CRD’s boundaries.
Residents in the Nazko area and other areas of the Cariboo Regional District are reminded to use caution as banks of rivers, streams or washout areas may be unstable and dangerous. Please stay away from fast flowing water, as well as road washouts.
The BC River Forecast Centre and the Province’s Water Stewardship department have advised the CRD to expect high stream flows and potential flooding concerns along the Quesnel River, Cottonwood River and Horsefly River. Residents who live along these waterways and their tributaries should take steps now to prepare in case of flooding.
Contact the CRD’s EOC if you have concerns about flooding in your area or need sand or sandbags. It is the homeowner's responsibility to undertake temporary and permanent flood protection works to protect their home and property. Learn more about proper sandbagging techniques: bit.ly/2FldNd1
The CRD Emergency Operations Centre will remain active with minimal staff during business hours to enable a quick response to any additional flooding. The CRD Emergency Information Line is open during business hours for recovery and re-entry questions or any flooding concerns; please call 1-866-759-4977. For after-hours emergencies, please call the Provincial Emergency Reporting Line at 1-800-663-3456.
