Evacuation Order Rescinded for Wilson Road, Electoral Area E

February 7, 2022

The Evacuation Order and Alert for properties in the Chilliwack Lake Road - Wilson Road area of Electoral Area E has been rescinded. 

The Evacuation Order and Alert was originally issued on December 22, 2021 following the extreme weather and flooding events.

While the Evacuation Order and Alert are rescinded, there is a risk of future flooding and bank erosion in the area. 

FVRD has completed emergency bank protection works involving the placement of rip rap to reduce the risk of further bank erosion from seasonal river flows. The emergency works do not include permanent reinstatement of the dike which is intended for the future.
