The City of Prince George is rescinding the evacuation alert for the residents of Farrell Street near Paddlewheel Park due to receding water levels in the Fraser River. The BC River Forecast Centre is forecasting that water levels will remain below flood level in the coming days after approaching that threshold over the weekend and prompting the alert.
City staff is continuing to monitor river levels. Cottonwood Island Park and the Heritage River Trail from the Cameron Street Bridge to Taylor Drive remain closed. Paddlewheel Park and Hazelton Park are also closed.
The city encourages residents to use caution at all times when near the rivers, particularly during periods of increased water levels.
