Heavy rainfall and wind expected to continue

Please help to keep catch basins clear of fallen leaves

UPDATE FOR SATURDAY, OCTOBER 25:  A wind warning has been issued for the Howe Sound area. Please use extra caution when driving due to strong winds. Also, please avoid trails and wooded areas due to the possibility of falling branches.

Due to stormy weather over the past few days, our local streets have become inundated with fallen leaves, clogging catch basins and blocking street drains. The District is asking residents and businesses to take a few minutes to clear catch basins near your property so rain water can properly drain from local streets and alleys. Your assistance clearing leaves from drains will help reduce the chance of street flooding, and assist District crews as they respond to priority situations.

And, with heavy rainfall, water levels in our local rivers and creeks are running high. Please exercise caution and stay away from the rivers’ edge, due to elevated water levels, swift moving currents, and bank erosion. Thank you!

New Community Recreation Centre - Update

Site excavation is well underway.

Site excavation for the new Community Recreation Centre is well underway. In addition to excavators and other pieces of equipment, you’ll also notice tall drill rigs on site. These drill rigs will bore out soil along the perimeter of the excavation site and replace it with concrete. This concrete perimeter will allow for the safe removal of approximately 52,000 tons of soil and fill. Visit our project web page to learn more about this exciting project.
