Notice of Gate Change – 30th April, 2021
The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations have informed the City of Merritt of a gate change today at the Nicola Lake dam.
Rain has already fallen in the upper areas, and is forecast for the Merritt region. This is increasing water flows into the lake, and as a result the outflow through the dam will be increased slightly.
Although this means more water will be flowing through Merritt, and the water level of the Nicola river will rise, no flooding risk is anticipated at this time.
