Evacuation Alert removed for Sparwood residents

The evacuation alert for GN Road, Lodgepole Trailer Court and Mountain View Mobile Home Park, has been lifted.

  • Jun. 22, 2013 6:00 a.m.

As a result of the lower levels in Michel Creek and Cummings Creek overnight, the evacuation alert for GN Road, Lodgepole Trailer Court and Mountain View Mobile Home Park, is lifted.

Residents are reminded that areas that have been flagged off as closed, remain so, until crews are able to inspect and determine that the area is safe to enter.  Water levels remain high and the banks are particularly unsafe, as erosion underneath, not visible from the top of bank may have occurred.

The properties on Industrial Road #3 and Michel Creek Road will continue to experience lower pressure levels than normal, resulting from the loss of the water line under the Elk River.

The Local State of Emergency declared on June 20 remains in effect.

Further updates will be provided as information becomes available.
