Shuswap Lake continues to fall – but a flood watch remains in place for the region.

As of Tuesday at 6 a.m., the lake level was measured at 348.801 metres.

That's down from 348.845 metres on Monday – a drop of 0.044 m or 1.7 inches over the past 24 hours.

Shuswap Lake's worst flood year was 1972, when the lake peaked at 349.660 metres.

Despite the lake falling, the Shuswap Emergency Program is keeping its Emergency Operations Centre active to monitor the situation and react as needed.

The entire Shuswap remains under flood watch status from the BC River Forecast Centre.
