Flood Prevention & Property Protection

The Village of Lumby is encouraging residents to take precautionary measures for flood prevention and property protection.

Flooding is a common, naturally occurring event in British Columbia.  Village of Lumby property owners are responsible for any measures required for flood protection on private property.  General flooding can occur when water levels in lakes, creeks, or rivers rise as a result of heavy snow melt, run-off or rain in the spring and early summer seasons.

PreparedBC and the Province of British Columbia offer various educational tools on flood preparedness. In an effort to be proactive, we highly encourage residents to educate themselves and consider whether they should begin flood prevention actions such as sandbagging.

Sand and sand bags are available at the following locations for residents who require them to protect their property from high water swelling.  All aspects of the sandbagging process are the responsibility of the homeowner, and these materials have been provided strictly for flood protection purposes.

The Village of Lumby advises any person working near creeks, streams and rivers to use extreme caution and safety measures. Fast moving water may cause erosion and bank instability.
