Nechako Remains High

Monday, June 8, 2015 @ 3:55 AM

Prince George, B.C.- The  flow of the Nechako through Vanderhoof and Prince George  continues to be high and will remain so  through much of the week.In Vanderhoof,  the  Nechako was flowing at  about 673 cubic meters per second last night,  and the BC River Forecast Centre says it expects that rate to continue through to  the middle of the week.

Although boaters in Vanderhoof have been advised to stay off the river,  the RCMP  in that community now advise unauthorized boaters causing wakes that impact flood mitigation works within municipal borders may be charged with mischief, and boats can be impounded awaiting a court date (6-12 months).  The washrooms and campgrounds at Riverside Park have been closed, and while the park remains open  visitors are advised to stay clear of  the river.

The District of Vanderhoof has also been receiving  questions aout what to do about mold in basements.  The local  Health Officer  says instead of using bleach, a mild detergent may be helpful.  Anyone  needing more information on  what to do about mold,  should contact the local Health Unit at 250-567-6900.

Meantime,  downstream  at the gauge at Isle Pierre,  the  flows were registering  1041 last evening.

As for the Fraser River,  the level at the South  Fort gauge  shows the Fraser continues to drop and the River Forecast Centre is not expecting the Fraser to  cause any  concern.






I think ammonia is a much better way to go for mold.
