The town of Osoyoos, B.C. is working to have evacuated residents return home.
An information bulletin released May 22 says the town is putting together a plan to have residents who were evacuated during the recent flooding of Osoyoos Lake, back into their homes. The town updated the progress for various areas of the town.
Fortis Gas, the local supplier of natural gas and electricity, has advised they are working with the town to resume gas service.
Harbour Key and 5805, 5809, 5810 and 5812 Cottonwood Drive remains flooded. It will not be re-assessed for re-entry until the water retreats. Residents are being advised they’re still under an Evacuation Order.
Those who have remained are advised they must not use their sewer services. "Some residents in the area have been experiencing sewer backup in their homes," due to the use of the system by their neighbours," states the town.
Two properties on Harbour Key no longer affected by flooding will be assessed in the next few days. These residents will be advised when town crews and Fortis Gas will conduct inspections. Two properties, 6404 Cottonwood and 7702 Main Street, remain under and Evacuation Order.
A single property on Kingfisher Drive remains on Evacuation Order until further notice. The 69 units at Paradise Park remain on Evacuation Order until further notice.
Osoyoos is 400 kilometres east of Vancouver in the Okanagan Valley region. It's surrounded by desert, vineyards and mountains.
