Normal water levels have dropped the necessity for Spallumcheen’s Emergency Operations Centre.
“As of June 30, 2022, all creeks and culverts are flowing normally,” said Lisa Gyorkos, deputy corporate officer. “Public Works crews will continue to monitor creeks and culverts on a daily basis.”
Stepney Road is fully open, after it was flooded June 15 and Spallumcheen first activated its emergency operations centre, which has now been deactivated.
In Enderby, water levels of the Shuswap River have decreased eight inches in three days, since June 27.
While it may be hot this weekend, people are recommended to stay off the river.
“There is fast moving murky water conditions with an increased amount of debris along with sweeper and log jams,” the Shuswap River Ambassadors said. “Water temperatures are cold with unpredictable hazards.”
Tuey Park/Waterwheel beach and Kildonan Boat launch remain closed.
Those who may be on the river with boats are asked to refrain from making a wake with the high water.
“Unnecessary waves can cause water to go over barricaded areas causing issues for people living riverside,” the ambassadors said.
