The following properties are no longer under the Alert:

42 – 1880 Old Boucherie Road

While the alert is rescinded, the public is asked to continue using care when walking near creeks as banks can be slippery, unstable, and subject to erosion.

Be aware that creeks and streams can rise rapidly and flows can increase suddenly. Please be vigilant when walking with young children, as they may not understand the dangers. Keep pets on-leash to avoid them running to the creeks.
