Fraser River

June 09, 2022

A high streamflow advisory continues for the Fraser River.  The Rotary Trail remains closed at this time.  As we continue to monitor the situation, should we need to escalate safety measures further, full or partial road closures in areas such as Wardle and 7th may occur.  We remind residents to remain clear of river banks and fast moving water and be prepared, and adhere to, any closures.

As the Fraser River continues to rise, the District has closed the Rotary Trail until further notice. The decision to close the trail was made out of an abundance of caution and in the interest of public safety.

Residents are reminded that while we experience the annual freshet on the Fraser River that high water levels and velocities are expected in the coming days and weeks. The District of Hope in conjunction with Emergency Management BC and BC River Forecast Centre continue to monitor the situation. We ask that residents remain clear of river banks and fast moving water and be prepared, and adhere to, trail and road closures.

Spring Freshet is underway and the District of Hope along with our stakeholders continue to monitor the forecast and current conditions.  The flood risk remains and we remind residents and property owners to remain vigilant during this annual occurence.  As river levels rise again this spring please stay clear of river banks and fast moving water.

The District of Hope, in conjunction with the River Forecast Centre, Environment and Climate Change Canada and Emergency Management BC, is currently monitoring the state of the Fraser River during the annual Spring Freshet.  In an effort to keep the public informed, this page will be updated with information on closures and alerts or orders.

We are reminding residents and property owners to prepare now for potential flooding this spring.   Flood risk has increased due to delayed snowmelt caused by cooler weather.
