Updated May 18, 2018

The River Forecast Centre has issued a High Streamflow Advisory for the Fraser River due to increased snow melt. River levels are rising and are expected to continue to rise, creating surging and faster flowing water over the long weekend and through to later next week.

City staff are monitoring water levels, conducting daily patrols of areas adjacent to the Fraser River, and are prepared for possible minor flooding as part of our Flood Response Plan »
