As of Wednesday, April 8, the water is sitting at around 220.2m above sea level. The water is currently running over the Waterfront.
The city has taken preventative measures well in advance of the water rising to reduce the impact of high-water levels:
– Removing lights, posts and anything that could potentially be swept away by the current at the Waterfront
– Building dikes near both Kiwanis and the Selkirk Canoe & Kayak Club to keep water from coming into Selkirk Park and the Marine Museum
– Pumping out water at low-sitting areas in Selkirk Park
There is no damage to personal property at this time.
We ask all citizens to please stay away from the river banks. If more information comes out, we will be sure to let everyone know.
