Prince George, B.C.- With ice build up on the Nechako River, water is now very close to the top of the riverbank.
The trail, between the Cameron Street bridge and the Kiwanis park is now closed and will remain so until the threat of flooding is over
The Nechako River has been backing up as ice jams at the confluence with the Fraser. The flow at Isle Pierre has been measured at about 200 cubic metres per second, which, when combined with the cold temperatures, poses a potential threat of flooding.
Water has already been observed pooling on some of the trails within Cottonwood Island Park.
