Cariboo property owners advised to prepare for flooding
High water levels already impacting some communities in the region
An above average snowpack and warm spring weather are bringing high water levels to rivers and streams in the Cariboo. With this in mind, the Cariboo Regional District is reminding property owners to prepare for potential flooding.
Unfilled bags and sand are available for free at the CRD’s Wildwood and Miocene Volunteer Fire Departments for residents. If you require sandbags, stop by either location to pick up unfilled bags and fill them with sand. Bags and sand will be placed in other communities depending on need.
Here are some additional steps residents can take to be prepared for seasonal flooding:
