Shuswap Lake close to 349-metre mark

High water in Blind Bay

Shuswap Lake hasn’t peaked yet.

The gradual but steady rise of the lake level continues, coming just shy of the 349-metre mark at noon on Sunday. High temperatures are predicted to increase snow melt feeding into the lake, pushing the lake’s high-water mark out into the coming week or beyond.

The 2018 flood levels peaked at 349.141 m, while 2012 saw a high-water mark of 349.588 m.

There is also the potential for thunderstorms on Tuesday that could increase localized flooding.

The Shuswap Emergency Program reminds residents to be cautious around water, especially as the lake temperature remains very cold. Fast-flowing creeks and rivers also pose a safety hazard. Please keep away from riverbanks and closely monitor children and pets.
