City Continues to Monitor Nechako River
Prince George, B.C. – The City of Prince George is continuing to monitor ice levels on the Nechako River.
Communications director Rob Van Adrichem says there’s been no change since yesterday other than the work on the back channel to remove ice.
At last night’s city council meeting, he told council there is about 35 kilometres of stationary ice, stretching from Red Rock canyon on the Fraser then up to the Nechako to approximately Pharaoh Road at the west end of Toombs Drive.
He said removing the ice was the best move they could make to offset any rising levels on the Nechako as the ice shifts and melts during the current mild temperatures.
The city activated a level one emergency operations centre due to the continued ice build-up on the Nechako River near the confluence with the Fraser River last Thursday.
