Nazko Evacuation Update
While water has been receding over the last couple days in the Nazko Valley, the BC River Forecast indicates that the water will rise again with the upcoming warmer temperatures. The water could potentially rise as high as the peak levels observed last weekend.
At this point the CRD is not planning to lift the evacuation order because of the expected rise of water. The CRD plans to allow people back home as soon as it is safe to do so.
The CRD’s two evacuation orders for the Nazko area impact about 120 properties:
