City Deactivates Emergency Operations Centre
Prince George, B.C.- The ice cover on the Nechako River is now 23 kms upstream from the Fraser, but because there are open channels of water on both rivers, the City of Prince George has deactivated its level one emergency operations centre.While daily monitoring will continue, the City says the flow at Isle Pierre is now 180 cubic metres per second, and the water level on the Nechako has dropped slightly from the levels seen just a couple of weeks ago.
Cottonwood Island Park and the Heritage River Trail remain temporarily closed to the public due to ongoing concerns relating to the provision of access to the riverfront.
While the operation of the EOC has been suspended, the City’s Public Works staff will continue daily monitoring of the Nechako at a number of locations. This information will be reviewed to determine if the EOC needs to be re-activated in the future.
