This week, the Regional District of the Central Okanagan said self-serve sand and sandbag stations are available at two North Westside fire stations: the Killiney Beach station, 514 Udell Road, and the Westside Road station, 7355 North Westside Road North.
The regional district says residents are responsible for filling their own sandbags, with supplies being replenished as needed.
“Due to the severity of last summer’s White Rock Lake wildfire, hazardous conditions assessments indicate some Estamont and Killiney Beach properties may be at higher risk for potential localized overland flooding and landslides in the event of heavy rains and snowmelt,” said the regional district.
The assessments and maps can be viewed on the regional district’s website.
The RDCO says property owners in the Central Okanagan East and Central Okanagan West electoral areas are encouraged to check ditches and driveway access culverts to ensure proper runoff.
The regional district says anyone with concerns should contact AIM Roads at 1-866-222-4204.
Self-serve sand and sandbag stations for Ellison, Joe Rich and Wilson’s Landing will be announced at a later date.
