Warning: Creek levels rising

The City of Kamloops is advising that elevated levels and fast moving water is being reported in the smaller tributaries throughout the city.

Some of these tributaries include Peterson Creek, Tranquille Creek, and Campbell Creek.

“We ask the public to exercise extreme caution around these creeks. Make sure your pets are on leashes and keep away from the water," said Fire Chief, Dale Mclean.

The public is reminded that rivers and creeks may become dangerous as water levels rise due to fast moving water.

In addition to the dangers of increased water flow along creeks, high water flows can cause bank erosion and instability.

Please avoid all streams and water bodies with rising levels. Ditches and culverts can also prove dangerous with fast moving water and debris, so caution needs to be taken when approaching ditches and culverts.

The City of Kamloops asks the public if you come across a blocked/obstructed culvert or ditch within the city boundaries to contact Public Works at 250-828-3461.
