Pemberton, BC – The Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD) Board has recently received the SLRD Geohazard Risk Prioritization Report.

The report identifies and prioritizes several geohazard risks, specifically flood, steep creek, and non-eruptive volcanic hazards (collectively referred to as geohazards) that might impact people, property and critical infrastructure in the region.

Evacuation Alert Issued for Lillooet Lake Estates and Heather Jean Properties

The Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD) has issued an Evacuation ALERT for Lillooet Lake Estates, Heather Jean Properties and other identified properties within Electoral Area C.

A wildfire burning above Lillooet Lake and the In-SHUCK-ch Forest Service Road, combined with forecast precipitation that includes the potential for heavy downpours, has created conditions that present a risk of a debris flow down the McCullock Creek drainage.
