OKIB EOC activated to monitor Freshet situation

May 6th, 2022

Way’ Members,

The OKIB has activated our EOC in response to the Spring Freshet, and increased flooding risk due to White Rock Lake Fire impacts. We are currently installing Tiger Dams along Whitemans creek to prevent flooding impacts.

OKIB has also worked to secure additional resources from the Province in the form of Tiger Dams and Gabion Baskets. A sandbag station is being set up at Komasket to utilize the recently purchased Sandbag Machine. We will continue to monitor areas that have been identified in post wildfire hazard assessments as being at risk.

Questions? Or did you notice something?
