The flood threat is rising again in Lumby.
The Village says flood conditions continue to be an issue, and staff have delivered updated Evacuation Alerts to residents and business in close proximity to the creeks.
“Water levels from the spring freshet are expected to peak this month, and so residents are asked to remain prepared,” states a village news release. “Levels remain particularly high in the Bessette/Harris Creek 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.
