Regional District applying for emergency flood funding

6/16/2012

The Regional District of the Central Okanagan is submitting an application for emergency funding to deal with the flood threat at Shorts Creek.

During a meeting yesterday, the board was advised of the immediate threat posed by further erosion along the creek in the Fintry/Delta area and that any additional flows and high water levels in the creek could cause problems.

The Regional Emergency Program is developing a plan to stop any serious erosion by diverting flows of the creek.

An application for funding will be submitted to Emergency Management BC over the weekend with a response hopefully received by Monday.
