Old Fort Landslide Update – June 24, 2020

Peace River Regional District Update

The Emergency Operations Centre is planning for long-term service provision for the residents of Old Fort who are impacted by the road being closed. The first needs assessment survey (distributed on Saturday, June 20) helped us to understand the immediate (first 7 days) needs of the community. This new survey will go into more depth to plan for long-term provision of transportation, water and sewer services. If these services become available, residents should note that they will need to register for services and there may be costs (e.g., pay for water at the same rate that you would usually if the road was open). Residents are encouraged to contact Canada Post to make alternate arrangements for mail delivery.

Please only answer this survey once per household, and please make sure to submit prior to June 24, 2020, at 4:00 pm.

If you are unable to fill out this survey, please call us at 250-784-3200 and we can assist.

You can find the survey link here.
