Freshet River Conditions

Submitted by karenh on Sun, 05/26/2019 - 09:35

The Fraser River is in Freshet.  This results in increased water levels and stronger than usual currents.  There may also be a change in the location or direction of local currents, and an increase in floating debris on the water.  This is an annual event which can result in flooding, remember the evacuation alerts in the Fraser Valley in 2012 and 2018?  The last major flood was in June 1948.  Please be extra aware of river conditions for the next few weeks.
