With sandbagging efforts fully underway in Wasa, an automatic sandbagger will be set up at the Community Hall later this morning (June 28).
“We have another 4,000 sandbags on the way out and a 30-member Forestry Crew in the community today helping with filling and placing sandbags,” says Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) Information Officer, Loree Duczek. “We also have RDEK staff in the community today doing a broad assessment of how many properties are being affected by high water levels.”
Including the shipment this morning, over 10,000 sandbags have been made available to Wasa residents and property owners over the past three days as water levels continue a slow rise in the wake of heavy rains earlier in the week.
The RDEK and Ministry of Environment will continue to monitor water levels in Wasa and other parts of the East Kootenay region.
