Every spring the Township of Spallumcheen prepares for the possibility of  localized flooding due to spring freshet as a result of rain and snowmelt. The Township’s Public Works crew are actively reviewing different areas in the municipality where there are potential flooding risks to Township infrastructure.

Anyone who is concerned that water is threatening a structure on their property due to overflowing ditches should contact the Municipal Office at 250-546-3013. If water is not a threat to structures, the Township requests that residents wait for water to naturally dissipate as resources are limited.

The Township of Spallumcheen would like to remind residents that they are responsible for protecting their buildings and properties from flooding. Sandbags are available, at no cost, for self-filling at the Township of Spallumcheen Public Works Yard located at 1511 Eagle Rock Road (bring your own shovel).

At this time of year it is especially important to remember to use caution around creeks and streams, as fast moving water may cause erosion and instability of bank edges.
