High-water risks persist around Shuswap Lake

Shuswap Lake is remaining on Flood Watch this weekend and into early next week, as heavy rains are in the forecast for Monday and Tuesday. While the weather looks mainly warm and sunny for the Canada Day weekend, the BC River Forecast Centre has concerns for the increased flood risk that may accompany these predicted thunderstorms.

Residents are advised to leave all flood-protection measures in place until the flood risk is substantially lower. Self-serve sandbag stations across the Shuswap will remain open throughout the weekend.

As it appears the flood situation is predicted to be relatively stable for the next few days, the Shuswap Emergency Program will not be updating websites and social media platforms over the weekend, unless the flooding situation changes dramatically. Emergency Program staff will be continuing to monitor water levels over the weekend and are ready to react as needed.

Our Emergency Program Mapping Dashboard continues to have real-time updates on lake and river levels for those who may want to keep an eye on them over the weekend.
