Rising waters in the Shuswap River have forced a pair of access closures in Enderby.
The City of Enderby is keeping a close watch on the river for flood conditions. It has not yet activated its emergency operations centre but will do so if conditions worsen and support is needed.
Tuey Park and the Kildonan boat launch are closed due to the rising level of the Shuswap River, the city announced Wednesday.
“Please do not use these facilities until the water levels have receded, at which point the Tuey Park access gate will be reopened and the barricades will be removed from the Kildonan boat launch,” the city said.
The Shuswap River is flowing high and fast, with debris flows and other unpredictable hazards. The public is advised to use caution when on or near to the river.
Sand and sandbags are available for free at the Public Works Yard at 2308 McGowan Street. Residents must bring their own shovel.
