Thompson River levels rising

The Thompson River continues its annual spring swell, rising a metre in less than two weeks.

According to federal hydrometric data, the Thompson hit the four-metre mark on Monday — high enough that Overlanders Beach is largely underwater.

It took 10 days for the river to rise one metre. Hydrometric data shows the river hit the three-metre mark on April 23.

The Thompson has been rising since mid-March. The river’s level bottomed out in February at 2.044 metres.

Last year, the river peaked on June 28 at 7.824 metres.
