Prince George is coming off the second driest summer in record and that’s being reflected by the water levels in local rivers. The dry summer along with a low snow pack over the past winter have left both the Nechako and Fraser rivers with lower than normal flows. The Nechako is about 30 percent lower than normal, allowing access to islands usually separated by water at Cottonwood Island park. Water on the Fraser is 40 percent lower than average. River Forecast Centre officials are keeping an eye on the flows.
