EOC Update on Frosst Creek Emergency Works, Electoral Area H
December 17, 2021
As a result of the recent series of atmospheric rivers, there has been significant sediment and debris deposited in Frosst Creek near Lindell Beach in Electoral Area H.
Update on emergency works completed and the current situation:
- FVRD contracted hydro-technical and geotechnical engineers to assess Frosst Creek and Frosst Creek Dike.
- FVRD began emergency work immediately after the event to remove sediment and debris from Frosst Creek to lower water levels after the first atmospheric river using funds from the FVRD’s Frosst Creek Flood and Debris Control Local Service Area. This work continued until the Service Area’s funds were exhausted.
- FVRD has since had funding approved to cover the work completed to date as well as additional sediment and debris removal. FVRD will mobilize our contractor in the coming days.
- FVRD has received approvals under the Fisheries Act and Water Sustainability Act to complete these works.
- Localized seepage was discovered in the Lindell Beach area. This seepage was assessed by FVRD engineers and it has been determined that it does not pose an imminent risk.
