Elkford’s State of Local Emergency ends

The District of Elkford’s State of Local Emergency declared June 20, expired last night (June 27) at 8:50 p.m. The Evacuation Alert will no longer be in effect.

The rivers are still running fast; therefore, residents are asked to stay away from the Elk River and Boivin Creek. These and other waterways may have bank erosion, which has made trees in the area unstable. As a result the Peace Park is still closed until further notice.

The dike/trail system along the Elk River has received damage during the flood. Dike assessments are being conducted with repair work to follow. Residents are asked to stay away from this area, as portions of the dike/trail are missing, and many spots have been impacted by undercutting.

Disaster Financial Assistance (DFA) has been authorized for qualifying claimants, such as home owners, residential tenants, small business owners, farmers, charitable organizations and local government bodies, who were unable to obtain insurance to cover these disaster-related losses. More information is available at .

Community updates will continue to be provided on the District of Elkford website and Facebook. There will no longer be any updates on the District’s 91.1 FM emergency radio station.
