Nicola Lake Dam 3

Over the weekend, a combination of rain and a gate change at the Nicola Dam resulted in the river rising throughout town.

On Saturday morning, City Hall reported that the river has risen two inches overnight.

“The Nicola Lake rose by only 3 centimeters (Friday), which is the lowest total that we have seen throughout this season’s freshet.  So long as the trend of inflows coming down each day continues, it is likely that further increases from the dam will not be necessary,” wrote Sean Smith.

Sandbags remain available at the Civic Centre for residents.
