Flood conditions persist around Lumby creeks

Village reminds residents to use caution around creeks and protect their properties

The Village of Lumby is reminding residents living near its creeks that flood conditions remain an issue.

Staff, Friday, hand-delivered evacuation alerts to residents and businesses in close proximity to the creeks.

“Water levels from the spring freshet are expected to peak this month, so residents are asked to remain prepared,” wrote the village.

Levels remain particularly high in the Bessette/Harris Creek area, as well as Creighton Creek.

Property owners are responsible for the protection of their private property. Sandbags are available in the parking lot across from the curling club and in the cul-de-sac on Heighway Crescent.

All recreational trails, including the Salmon Trail, remain closed until further notice.
