Update Friday, May 18, 2018 2:30pm
Today’s lake level is 342.45m. The province is still predicting lake levels to rise to 343.00m therefore property owners should be prepared for a further rise of 55 cm (21.5 inches).
The District of Summerland continues to take proactive measures to protect municipal infrastructure against potential flooding. Powell Beach will be closed over the weekend as protective Gabion baskets are installed as part of the mitigation strategy. In addition, beach access roads (five in Trout Creek; one at Crescent Beach) will be closed as Gabion baskets are installed.
Creek levels remain stable; work at the Trout Creek dyke is nearing completion. Question relating to potential flooding, lake levels, etc. should be directed to Summerland’s Flood Information line at 250-486-3765
