Quesnel River Has Downgraded to a Flood Watch

The Ministry of Forests has put out a release yesterday afternoon, saying that the Quesnel River has been downgraded to a flood watch.

A flood watch means that river levels are rising and will approach or may exceed bankfull.

Rivers in the Central Interior still remain high for this time of year due to delayed seasonal snowmelt and additional contribution from precipitation events.

However, the river systems are beginning to slowly recede or, have already begun receding over the past week.
