UPDATE JUNE 29th 2022

Hi There,

I just wanted to send you a quick email to keep you in the loop of the projected river forecast for the next week, so you can be prepared for any issues that may arise.  The river forecast center is projecting the river to rise to approximately 6 meters tomorrow and crest at approximately 6.9 meters on Sunday July 3rd.  The river is projected to stay above the 6 meter mark until at least Thursday next week.  This is approximately 1 meter higher than the current river levels that we are experiencing.

Thank you,

Wes Halliday  Superintendent, Water and Wastewater

We are emailing to make you aware of a High Stream Flow Advisory that is projecting rising river levels over the next two weeks.  Properties along Quayside Drive could be at risk for flooding in their underground parking structures, particularly during high tide.  Please monitor your property and take the necessary precautions to protect it, especially electrical/mechanical/equipment rooms that may be in these underground area.  You may wish to consider putting up warning signs so that vehicle owners can find alternative parking.

The City is continuing to monitor river levels and advisories closely, and will keep residents and property owners informed if there is any increased risk of flooding.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me or call Engineering Operations at 604-526-4691 for more information.
