Due to the current weather forecast calling for increased winds today and through tomorrow, the BC Wildfire Service is asking the public to exercise caution with any outdoor burning. Please watch for changing weather conditions when having outdoor fires and follow all burning regulations. This will help to reduce the number of preventable fires.
Please note: If an open burn escapes and causes a wildfire, the person responsible may be held accountable for the damages and fire suppression costs. It is the responsibility of that individual to ensure that burning is done in a safe manner and in accordance with the regulations and any current restrictions. See the Information Bulletin for details.

Due to the recent rain and spring run-off, the water level at Moberly Lake has increased and remain high. It is expected to remain this way for some time yet due to the slow outflow from the lake.
The PRRD is asking all boaters to please respect shoreline speed limits and no-wake zones that may be in place on the lake. Higher water levels may increase the negative impacts to the shoreline and may increase the risk of hazards due to wave action on the lake. The PRRD appreciates your cooperation with this request.
