Flood preparation urged

The City of West Kelowna is urging residents in flood-prone areas to consider preparing for possible flooding now.

With record-breaking high temperatures across the Okanagan, spring freshet is underway.

To assist property owners with flood preparation, the city will begin staging supplies of sand, and sandbags at a number of locations on Monday. These include:

  • Beachnut Park - corner of George Court and Whitworth Road
  • Hitcher Park - corner of Hitcher and Jennens Roads
  • Gates Road - corner of Gates and Glenrosa Roads
  • Kinsmen Park - 3170 Shannon Lake Road
  • Westlake Road - adjacent to 1805 Westlake Road/Rose Valley Fire Hall
  • Casa Loma - 2606 Casa Loma Road
  • Falcon Park - Adjacent to 1339 Green Bay Road
  • Sternwheeler Park - adjacent to 1649 Pritchard Drive

Owners of private property in flood-prone areas are reminder they are responsible for ensuring their property is protected from flood damage.

The city is only responsible for protecting municipal infrastructure.

Residents are also asked to keep catch basins and culverts adjacent to their property clear of debris.
