The Regional District of Central Kootenay said creek levels have dropped enough for the evacuation alert to be downgraded to a high streamflow advisory.
The alert applied to 164 properties in Electoral Area F.
“While we are able to remove the alert at this time, residents in Six Mile and throughout the RDCK need to understand freshet season is far from over,” said Chris Johnson, RDCK EOC director.
“The snowpack remains unusually high for this time of year and it is imperative for residents to be prepared and stay informed by monitoring local weather and current stream flows.”
The long-range forecast from Environment Canada indicates lower temperatures and light showers are expected in the area.
The RDCK is urging nearby residents to remain vigilant and prepared, saying the evacuation alert could be reinstated if there is a serious rainfall or a sharp increase in temperature leading to significant snowpack melt.
