Spring Freshet - Flooding Information


Notice to Residents

Spring Freshet

Localized Flooding

 

The Township of Spallumcheen may experience localized flooding due to spring freshet, and as a result of rain and snowmelt.  The Township’s Public Works crew will be reviewing different areas in the municipality where there are flooding risks to Township infrastructure. 

Anyone who is concerned that water is threatening a structure on their property due to overflowing ditches should contact the Municipal Office at 250-546-3013. If water is not a threat to structures, the Township requests that residents wait for water to naturally dissipate as resources are limited.

The Township of Spallumcheen would like to remind residents that they are responsible for protecting their buildings and properties from flooding. Sandbags are available, at no cost, for self-filling at the Township of Spallumcheen Public Works Yard located at 1511 Eagle Rock Road (bring your own shovel).


 

It is recommended that residents use caution around creeks and streams, as fast moving water may cause erosion and instability of bank edges.
