Officials are keeping a close eye on Enderby’s rivers and creeks as temperatures jumped quickly last week.
The lower levels of the slightly higher than normal snow pack have already melted due to the early warm temperatures, but there’s still plenty of snow at higher levels, prompting officials to caution residents.
“It’s up to the property owners to mitigate any flooding concerns. We are essentially concerned with life safety,” explained Brent Watson, emergency management co-ordinator.
