The City of Maple Ridge has developed our Emergency Response Plan for flooding based on data collected and released by the BC River Forecast Centre. The River Forecast Centre notes that their models can change due to weather conditions (extreme heat or rainfall) which may make river levels change rapidly.
As a precaution the City of Maple Ridge has established a central sandbag depot that will be active for the duration of the Fraser River Freshet. If you have not received a Flood Advisory notification sandbagging may be premature. We recommend that you focus on other advance planning recommendations located on the City website.
The depot is located at ‘Albion’s Bradley’s One Stop Landscape and Garden Supplies’ and will be open to the public from 8:00 am until 6:00 pm daily. The address is 23549 Lougheed Highway, Maple Ridge, Phone: 604-836-9274.
