The Evacuation Alerts issued by the Town of Smithers, Village of Telkwa, and Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako on June 2, 2022, at 15:00 hours have been rescinded in their entirety.


The Evacuation Alert issued by the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako on June 3, 2022, at 15:00 hours for the Quick Station Area is also rescinded in its entirety.


Although the Evacuation Alert is being rescinded at this time, a high risk of flooding remains as warm weather and precipitation levels continue to create the possibility of sudden increases in river flow. Residents of low-lying areas should be prepared in case of a significant rise in water levels over a very short time.


The Hazard Notice issued on June 2, 2022, at 11:00 hours by the Town of Smithers, Village of Telkwa, and Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako remains in effect. Staff continue to monitor the river, snowpack levels, and weather forecasts. The public will be informed of significant changes.
