The City of New Westminster is urging residents to be cautious around the Fraser River.
The city wants residents to be aware of high water levels on the Fraser River and the need to be cautious in low-lying areas. The B.C. River Forecast Centre is predicting a high stream flow advisory for the Lower Fraser through the weekend and into next week.
"Given the high elevated water levels, the City of New Westminster is urging residents to remain aware and use caution when around the Fraser River shoreline, in particular Quayside, Port Royal, Braid industrial area, Sapperton Landing and other exposed and low lying areas adjacent to the Fraser or Brunette rivers," said a notice posted on the city's website on June 22. "Also, residents and visitors should remain aware when utilizing below ground parking areas adjacent to the Fraser River, as they may experience minor flooding or seepage during high water levels."
The city's emergency management office will continue to monitor the situation. For more information, visit newwestcity.ca.
