Risk of flooding has now abated in the Boundary region. The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) is now advising residents that they can remove sandbags around homes and businesses.

The EOC will not be collect sandbags, and are encouraging residents to either, store sand and sandbags for next year, reuse the sand (find someone who needs it), or as a last resort take full sandbags to the landfill.
