High Riverittes will soon notice information from the Town about the snowpack in the mountains.
As of now there are no concerns.
A deep snowpack, a fast melt and extended heavy rains can contribute to flooding.
The Town is monitoring conditions as the snow begins to melt at higher elevations, sending water into the Highwood River.
The two photos' below show the snow melt difference within just two days of warm temperatures.
So far spring of 2023 is showing an average-to-below-average range for snowpack in the mountains and in the river basin, however monitoring will continue through to the end of June.
Regular updates for the community will be shared every Friday beginning May 12, 2023 - watch for them on...
- Official Town website and social media channels
- Bulletin boards around Town
- On garbage trucks signs later this month
- Local radio and newspaper
If there is a change in status from "normal" to a "high stream flow advisory", the community will be updated immediately.
