Rivers have been steadily rising over the past week due to snowmelt from the recent warm weather and smaller creeks in the region have reached 2-year return flows.
Quicker rises may occur in these creeks and other rivers in the Skeena-Buckley Region over the weekend depending on location and intensity of forecasted rain.
The public is advised to:
- Stay clear of fast-flowing rivers and potentially unstable riverbanks
- Avoid recreational activities such as fishing, swimming, boating or hiking near high streamflow rivers or streams
- Remember, high streamflow can easily trap strong swimmers, increasing risk of drowning
- During a High Streamflow Advisory, conditions can change quickly.
