Evacuation Order Partial Rescind - Othello Road, Electoral Area B

December 22, 2021

The Evacuation Order issued on November 28, 2021, has been partially rescinded for five properties on Othello Road. 

Nine properties remain under Evacuation Order. See the latest Order at https://www.fvrd.ca/EOC.

While the Evacuation ORDER may be cancelled for the above-mentioned properties, there is an ongoing risk from future overland flooding and river erosion in the area. FVRD has commissioned multiple hydrotechnical assessments to understand the ongoing risk in the area. The report will be shared with property owners as it becomes available.

The Ministry of Transportation has jurisdiction over the portion of Othello Road within the Regional District boundaries. Temporary emergency works are ongoing to establish a temporary haul road. It is uncertain as to the final alignment, design, and timeline for the permanent restoration of Othello Road. Please note that crews are operating heavy equipment in the area and that emergency services may be delayed to the properties. Please avoid the construction area, or exercise caution in the vicinity of the area.
