May 7, 2018 – The Flood Warning issued on April 30 for Bobs and Christie Lakes remains in effect.
Levels on both lakes have declined slightly but both remain above the ‘Full Supply’ threshold at which damage can occur. This decline will continue for the next two days with no precipitation forecast. However, rain is forecast for Thursday and through next weekend with a possible five day total close to 55 millimetres. If this amount falls, water levels are likely to increase but the primary impact is expected to be on Bobs and Christie Lakes.
Outflows from Bobs Lake are presently stable and no adjustments are planned for today. Some lower lying properties on Christie Lake have been affected by high waters. Docks and other shoreline structures have been damaged and bank erosion has occurred on some properties on both lakes.
Everyone needs to be cautious around lakes and streams with the fluctuating water levels. Children need to be educated about the hazards and kept away from all watercourses.
This message will be in effect until Wednesday, May 9.
