Several positive factors have led to the City’s decision to rescind the evacuation alert. At 4 am on November 21, the City of Abbotsford was able to stop the flow of water through the Sumas dike breach. With closure of the dike breach and the continued operation of Abbotsford’s Barrowtown pump station, water levels have begun to slowly recede.

Staff will continue to monitor weather forecasts and the condition of Abbotsford’s flood protection infrastructure, and advise of any changes.

“Chilliwack is a caring community and it has been great to see everyone come together to help each other during this time,” said Mayor Popove. “The safety of our residents is paramount. We continue to monitor the situation and we are prepared in the event anything changes.”

Livestock that have already been evacuated from Yarrow may begin to return. Vedder Mountain Road, west of Cultus Lake Road, will be closed starting at 7 am on Monday, November 22 for culvert installation, slope stabilization, and urgent road reconstruction due to the recent landslide. Please use Keith Wilson Road to access Yarrow.

Updates will be posted online at chilliwack.com/FloodWatch as information becomes available.
