Terrace Fire Department stresses safety, though water levels remain normal

With flooding and water levels becoming a concern throughout the province, Terrace remains relatively unscathed.

According to Dave Jepsen of the Terrace Fire Department, water levels remain normal across the city.

“At this point in time, the snow pack is continued normal for us,” says Jepsen on the water levels, “the current water level is also normal for this time of year. We’ve been fortunate for a steady highflow in the Skeena.”

Though Jepsen is still stressing safety and wants to insure everyone keeps their distance as water levels rise.

“With the water as high as it is, the ground has become very soft near the banks, some people think they con just stand near that rock or near that dirt, but that’s just a bad thing to do.”

Jepsen is also warning drivers of the risks on the roads that come with the snow melt.

“If you live in an area that gets flooded with water and your road level gets blocked off, we do recomend you don’t drive through that water,” Jepsen continues, “unfortunately when the water comes up it starts erroding on both sides of that road… when it’s under water, you don’t know where the edge (of the road) is.”
