Nechako River Remains Static

The City is punching a path through Cottonwood Island Park from the boat launch to the confluence with the Fraser River, should the water levels on the Nechako rise to any degree. An ice jam began to build on the Nechako River last week, because of the frigid temperatures. By Friday, the ice jam was 35 kilometres long.
However, the warmer temperatures have cut a channel through the ice. The river water levels at Isle Pierre dropped marginally this weekend and there is open water flowing in both the Nechako and Fraser Rivers. However, the City’s Emergency Operations Centre will remain in place for the time being, out of an abundance of caution.
