Townsite Office will be closing down for the evening so this is the final update for Friday, June 21.
The mandatory evacuation order has been lifted; however, the Water Treatment Plant is shut down and there will be no water until Sunday, June 22 at the very earliest. We are urging residents not to return to their homes at this time. You will have no ability to have showers, use toilets, wash dishes, etc.
The lifting of the mandatory evacuation order does not mean that the emergency is over. Infrastructure crews and emergency services are limited in their capacity for the next 24 – 48 hours. Townsite Office will have limited hours and staff over the weekend. In addition, the river is still extremely high and poses a significant risk to the community.
