Agencies are still responding to the vehicle incident at Nicola Lake. In order to take necessary actions for safety, the dam level is being lowered to slow the flow of water out of the lake.

Over the next 12 – 24 hours, the level of the Nicola River in Merritt will change substantially. This evening, the river level will drop to well below its current levels. When the dam is re-opened, the water levels will rise again. 

We are asking all residents to stay away from the river for your own safety. The river level will change substantially, and you should not assume that it is safe. 

We will update residents with future changes as more information becomes available.
