Weeks after the torrential flooding that devastated some properties alongside Mission Creek, the Regional District of the Central Okanagan will be cleaning up the area at the request of the Provincial Government.
Emergency Management BC has approved funding for the project that will see the collection of man-made residual debris – namely the material found downstream of a Joe Rich property that washed away last month.
An initial assessment has been completed and a bidding process is currently underway for qualified contractors to carry out the project. The cleanup itself will begin once the contract has been awarded and Mission Creek drops to a lower level.
Property owners alongside the creek and downstream of the property can make reports to the Regional District Community Services department at 250-469-6241.
