A reminder to residents along the Fraser River that we continue to expect another significant rise in water levels due to heavy rains in the Fraser River watershed.  Those that live in the usual low lying areas of Wardle, Landstrom, Bristol Island, Haig Station and Tom Berry Rd should be diligent and aware of the potential for further high water and seepage.  Please respect closures and remain clear of river banks and fast moving water.  We continue to monitor the situation and will update as information becomes available.
