- Due to the unfavorable weather conditions, many farmers were not able to harvest their crops and they will remain in the fields until they can be harvested in the spring.
- Driving snowmobiles and other recreational vehicles on the crops will damage them, resulting in less crops being viable in the spring.
- If you need to get around a field, choose to drive around the edges than through the middle of the field.

The Peace River Regional District would like to apologize for the delays in opening the Rose Prairie Water Station. Residents have been extremely patient in what we know has been a frustrating process. During the commissioning of the Rose Prairie Water Station earlier this year, Sulphides were found in the water supply. Additional treatments have been installed to reduce the Sulphides, however, these treatments have not yet been able to decrease the measurable turbidity (cloudiness) in the water to acceptable levels. The PRRD’s goal is to open the Rose Prairie Water Station as soon as possible, however, the health and safety of residents is our top concern. Before opening, the Rose Prairie Water Station must meet the Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality and the BC Ministry of Health treatment objectives for groundwater. The PRRD is carefully weighing different options to move forward with the Rose Prairie Water Station. So far, options include locating an alternative water source within the vicinity of the existing water station and/or additional treatment upgrades. It is our intention to have an update for residents by the end of January 2020.
The Peace River Regional District would like to once again thank residents for their patience and look forward to the opening of the Rose Prairie Water Station in 2020!
Let’s tell the story of the Agriculture Industry in the Peace. The PRRD is asking Peace Region Farmers to complete a short survey about how the poor weather in 2019 has affected producers and businesses.
Visit prrd.bc.ca/engage/agriculture to find out more and take the survey.
The PRRD is taking the situation facing the Agriculture Industry extremely seriously and is taking action to advocate for agriculture.
At the November 14th Board Meeting, the Peace River Regional District Board resolved to take action in support the local agriculture industry by sending a letter to provincial and federal representatives, including Premier John Horgan, Minister of Agriculture, Lana Popham, MLA Dan Davies, MLA Mike Bernier, and MP Bob Zimmer. The Peace River Regional District would like to clarify that while the PRRD Board is in full support of the Agriculture industry and local farmers, there has not been a declaration of an Agricultural Emergency at this time. Video of the full discussion regarding the report can be found on the PRRD’s website at https://prrd.bc.ca/agendasminutes/peace-river-regional-district-prrd/.
