City Deactivates Emergency Operations Centre

Tuesday, January 3, 2017 @ 2:01 PM

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.





Rio Tinto musta turned the tap off.

City deactivates emergency operations center…. that certainly does sound ominous… but really they probably just took down a bulletin board post :)

    And the firemen don’t have to pee in the river from the end of the boom stick anymore.

And how much did it cost us. It $1000 an hour for the helicopter so some can get they there fun ride. Just more money down the drain. And up go’s our taxes.
