Bringing convenient & contactless recycling solutions to the Village of McBride
AUG 23, 2021

Baljit Lalli – Vice-President, Corporate Communications and Stakeholder Relations  •  August 20, 2021


Recycling just got more convenient in the heart of McBride. Starting today, locals can drop off their unsorted and bagged empty refundable beverage containers at Northern B.C.’s first Return-It Express & GO recycling station, located at 600 NW Frontage Road. More information can be found here.

The cashless, contactless, and solar-powered recycling station is housed in a 20-foot repurposed shipping container and is one of the ways Return-It is addressing accessibility, and innovating recycling in B.C.

 

Bringing convenient solutions that encourage recycling is what we do at Return-It, and we are committed to working with communities to address their specific needs,” said Allen Langdon, President and CEO of Return-It. “We are pleased to be bringing McBride residents a new recycling option, and we want to thank the Village of McBride for all their support.

This new Express & GO recycling station is a direct response to the unique needs of the residents of McBride, who previously transported their empty beverage containers one-to-two hours, to depots in Valemount or Prince George, for a deposit refund.

We want to thank Return-It for working with us to increase our community’s access to recycling solutions,” said Gene Runtz, Mayor of McBride. “This new recycling station has a positive environmental impact as it encourages residents of our village to keep recyclable materials out of landfills – without having to travel to a neighbouring town to responsibly recycle their beverage container for a deposit refund.

Through the Express system, users will receive their deposit refunds through their free online account which can be redeemed by Interac e-transfer or cheque. Residents also have the option of donating their refunds directly to a local charity or community group.

The installation of the new Express & GO recycling station directly supports the Village of McBride’s first Strategic Priority, which is to strive towards long term economic resiliency and sustainability; as well as bolstering community vibrancy and well-being’,” said Chris Tupy, Chief Administrative Officer of the Village of McBride. “We are pleased to partner with Return-It, who understands these priorities. Another benefit is that through the Express system, residents also have the option and ability to support our local community by donating their deposit refunds to a local charity."

Now expanded to seven Express & GO locations across B.C., this convenient model supports a growing need for contactless, innovative recycling infrastructure in a wide range of communities – from large urban centres where commercial space is at a premium, to less accessible, rural locations where traditional depot facilities may be less viable.

Effective July 30, 12:00 pm pacific - Campfire Ban for the Robson Valley Fire District
JUL 30, 2021

For Immediate Release
July 30, 2021

Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations
and Rural Development

BC Wildfire Service

Campfires prohibited in the Robson Valley Fire Zone

 

ROBSON VALLEY—Effective at noon (Pacific time) on Friday, July 30, 2021, campfires will be prohibited throughout the Robson Valley Fire Zone.

 

The prohibition will remain in effect until noon on October 15, 2021, or until the order is rescinded.

 

Multiple factors are taken into consideration when assessing wildfire hazards and deciding whether to implement an open fire prohibition, including: current and forecasted weather conditions; the availability of firefighting resources; and the Buildup Index (BUI).

The BUI rating is an estimate of the total amount of fuel available for combustion on the landscape. It takes into account the fuel’s moisture content, since that can affect fire intensity.

Campfire prohibitions are implemented based on the particular region’s BUI values. The Buildup Index allows the province’s six fire centres to follow a consistent and scientific process for evaluating the need for campfire prohibitions.

 

Though conditions in the majority of the Prince George Fire Centre have met the criteria to rescind the campfire ban due to recent rainfall and cooler temperatures, the Robson Valley Fire Zone has remained warm and dry. As a result of this weather pattern, the BUI threshold for a campfire ban in the Robson Valley Fire Zone has been met. 

 

Camping is a long-standing tradition in this province. The B.C. government recognizes that people also enjoy having campfires, so it takes any decision to implement a campfire ban very seriously.

 

Wildfire prevention is a shared responsibility. Human-caused wildfires are completely preventable and divert critical resources away from lightning-caused wildfires.

 

A campfire is defined as any fire smaller than 0.5 metres high by 0.5 metres wide. In addition to campfires, Category 2, and Category 3 open fires, the following activities are also prohibited:

The use of fireworks
The use of sky lanterns
The use of burn barrels or burn cages of any size or description
The use of binary exploding targets
The use of tiki and similar kinds of torches
The use of chimineas
The use of outdoor stoves or other portable campfire apparatus without a Canadian Standards Association (CSA) or Underwriter Laboratories of Canada (ULC) rating 
The use of air curtain burners
 

For a map of the Robson Valley Fire Zone boundaries, please visit: http://ow.ly/GEYk30rPviD

 

A poster explaining the different categories of open burning and applicable regulations is available online: www.gov.bc.ca/openfireregs.

To report a wildfire or an open burning violation, call *5555 on a cell phone or 1-800-663-5555 toll-free. For the latest information on current wildfire activity, burning restrictions, road closures and air quality advisories, visit: http://www.bcwildfire.ca.

FLOOD WARNING - UPPER FRASER RIVER
JUN 29, 2021

Flood Warning – Upper Fraser River (UPGRADED)

Issued: 1:00PM June 29, 2021

The River Forecast Centre is upgrading to a Flood Warning for the Upper Fraser River including:

Upper Fraser River including the Robson Valley and areas from Sinclair Mills upstream to Torpy, Dome Creek, Dore River, McBride and surrounding tributaries

Temperatures have been trending upward over the past five days in the headwaters of the Upper Fraser. The average maximum temperature at four of the high elevation automated snow weather stations have been increasing as follows; June 24: 14.2°C, June 25: 20.3°C, June 26: 26.3°C, June 27: 29.4°C, June 28: 31.5°C.

The average elevation at these stations is 1,725 metres above sea level. The extremely hot temperatures have triggered an astounding amount of snowmelt at the higher elevations of the Upper Fraser River. The stations that still have remaining snowpack are melting at 80-100mm of snow water equivalent per day. Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) forecasts two more extremely hot days before slightly cooling on Thursday and Friday in the region.

The current forecast at McBride has the following maximum temperatures, Tuesday: 41°C, Wednesday: 38°C, Thursday: 31°C, Friday: 31°C.  There is a forecast weather pattern shift towards potentially wetter conditions. The current forecast is 30% chance of showers for Wednesday and Thursday. The Upper Fraser is extremely vulnerable if a moderate to heavy rain event occurs in the upcoming 5-days.

The status of rivers in the region at 12:00PDT on June 29th:

FRASER RIVER AT RED PASS (08KA007) is flowing at 334 m3/s (between 10-year and 20 year flow) and is forecast to continue rising for at least another day.

FRASER RIVER AT MCBRIDE (08KA005) is flowing at 1230 m3/s (20-year return period) and forecast to continue rising for at least another day.

DORE RIVER NEAR MCBRIDE (08KA001) reached 141 m3/s (between 10-year and 20-year flow) on Monday evening and is expected to have higher evening peaks over the upcoming days. The highest peak will likely occur on the hottest day. Last year’s flood event occurred with a peak flow of 171 m3/s on June 23, 2020.

MCKALE RIVER NEAR 940M CONTOUR (08KA009) reached approximately 90 m3/s (5-year flow) on Monday evening. The past three days have seen similar daily peaks suggesting that snow is a limiting factor and it’s unlikely for flows to go higher than 90 m3/s on snowmelt alone.

MORKILL RIVER BELOW HELLROARING CREEK (08KA013) reached approximately 312 m3/s (2-year flow) on Monday evening. The past four days have seen similar daily peaks suggesting that snow is a limiting factor and it’s unlikely for flows to go higher than approximately 320 m3/s on snowmelt alone.

Details of the CLEVER Model forecasts for this region can be found at: http://bcrfc.env.gov.bc.ca/freshet/map_clever.html

The public is advised to stay clear of the fast-flowing rivers and potentially unstable riverbanks during the high-streamflow period.

The River Forecast Centre continues to monitor the conditions and will provide updates as conditions warrant.

 

BC River Forecast Centre

Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development
A High Streamflow Advisory means that river levels are rising or expected to rise rapidly, but that no major flooding is expected.  Minor flooding in low-lying areas is possible.
A Flood Watch means that river levels are rising and will approach or may exceed bankfull.  Flooding of areas adjacent to affected rivers may occur.
A Flood Warning means that river levels have exceeded bankfull or will exceed bankfull imminently, and that flooding of areas adjacent to the rivers affected will result.

Village of McBride - Clarification of Roles of Bylaw Information Officer and Council
NOV 26, 2020

 

Corporation of the Village of McBride

 

 

 

November 26, 2020

The Council of the Village of McBride would like to take this opportunity to clarify the roles of Council and the Bylaw Information Officer.   The Village does not provide enforcement services – enforcement is the sole responsibility of the RCMP.   Council views the role of the Village and Bylaw Information Officer as providing assistance to businesses and individuals to comply with the current directives issued by Dr. Henry.

 Mr. Kelly Mortenson has been appointed as the Bylaw Information Officer and is available to assist businesses and individuals in keeping abreast of health orders and directives, and work with the community to find solutions for any issues and support of compliance measures.

We are confident that members of our community will continue to support our local businesses while alleviating stress for those who might be vulnerable to the effects of Covid-19 and will choose to follow Dr. Henry’s directives, regardless of their personal beliefs concerning the measures in place.   Every person has a right to their own opinions, however Council is confident that kindness and consideration for all the community will be a deciding factor in complying with the current directives.

Business have not yet recovered from the shut down of this past Spring and need their patrons to co-operate with the processes put into place to avoid the need for further restrictions.   Every person who enters a business is required to “mask-up”.   If someone is unable to wear a mask for health or personal reasons there are various resources available to assist in the delivery of products from the local businesses – please just call the business to make alternate arrangements.

Council has also discussed whether we should remain open to visitors to our community.   Currently the Provincial directives strongly recommend no unnecessary travel outside of your community.   There is no official restriction that prevents travel, but the hope is that common sense will prevail.   If visitors are advised of the Provincial directives and they follow those directives, there is no legal reason why visitors can not come to our community. Each business will be responsible for their own risk assessment to determine whether they will accept visitors to their business.   McBride is famous for being a welcoming community.   Council encourages the community to be respectful to any visitors that we see, and we are confident that they will be respectful in return.

Northern Health Information Bulletin - COVID-19 community outbreak on Haida Gwaii
JUL 30, 2020

UPDATE - COVID-19 community outbreak on Haida Gwaii

Ongoing contact tracing and testing for COVID-19 on Haida Gwaii has identified six additional lab-confirmed cases related to a community outbreak declared on July 24th. Northern Health public health staff are currently following up on a total of 20 cases; 13 are considered active, while seven individuals have recovered, at this time. 

The additional cases do not represent a significant expansion of the outbreak, nor do they suggest wider spread of COVID-19 in Haida Gwaii communities. While contact tracing work continues, it is believed the new cases are also epidemiologically linked to the original outbreak cases. 

The recently-identified Haida Gwaii cases are from exposures that took place prior to last week’s outbreak declaration. It would not be unexpected to identify additional cases in coming days, where exposure also occurred within the same COVID-19 incubation period.

All of the active cases continue to self-isolate at home, and none have required hospital care, to date. Northern Health and the First Nations Health Authority continue to work with Council of the Haida Nation and municipal governments on Haida Gwaii, to coordinate the community response to the outbreak. This includes ensuring individuals who may need to self-isolate outside their home community, or nearer to a higher level of care, have the support they need. 

Close contacts of any confirmed cases will be informed by public health officials, and supported in actions they should take, such as self-monitoring or self-isolating. It’s very important that anyone experiencing potential COVID-19 symptoms self-isolate, and contact their primary care provider or the NH COVID-19 Online Clinic & Info Line (1-844-645-7811). 

To help bend the curve on Haida Gwaii and stop the spread of COVID-19, we encourage community members to: 

Be Safe:
  • Stay home as much as possible.
  • Get tested if you are have any COVID-19 symptoms or are feeling sick.
  • Maintain physical distancing of greater than two metres – this is more important than ever.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Wear a mask when physical distancing cannot be maintained.
     

Have Safe Gatherings:

  • Fewer faces in bigger spaces. Limit your gatherings to small groups and hold them outside.
  • Keep gatherings to people you know and keep track of who attends, so we can contact them if someone gets infected. If you host a gathering, you are expected to have the names and contact information of those that attend.
  • Limiting gathering size in private residences to six people.
     

Be Kind:

  • Maintain the confidentiality of those who are sick or who are contacts
  • Show support and caring to those who are sick or who are contacts

River Forecast Centre Update - High Streamflow Advisory ended Upper Fraser and mainstream of Middle Fraser
JUL 24, 2020

Ended: High Streamflow Advisory – Upper Fraser and mainstream of Middle Fraser

Updated: 11:40 July 24, 2020

The River Forecast Centre is Ending the High Streamflow Advisory for:

The Upper Fraser River including tributaries above Hansard
The mainstream of Middle Fraser River to Lytton
The rivers have responded to the thunderstorms yesterday and this morning and the river levels have risen slightly. According to the latest hydrological modeling, the river levels are expected to rise slightly but below the 2-year return period levels this weekend. With the forecast seasonably hot and dry weather pattern beginning Saturday, the river levels are expected to drop further next week.

The River Forecast Centre continues to monitor the conditions and provides updates as conditions warrant.

BC River Forecast Centre

Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development

A High Streamflow Advisory means that river levels are rising or expected to rise rapidly, but that no major flooding is expected.  Minor flooding in low-lying areas is possible.

A Flood Watch means that river levels are rising and will approach or may exceed bankfull.  Flooding of areas adjacent to affected rivers may occur.

A Flood Warning means that river levels have exceeded bankfull or will exceed bankfull imminently, and that flooding of areas adjacent to the rivers affected will result.  

 






Village of McBride BOIL WATER NOTICE effective July 21, 2020
JUL 21, 2020

Northern Health has downgraded the DO NOT CONSUME Notice to a BOIL WATER Notice effective immediately and until further notice.

See the BOIL WATER NOTICE below:

BOIL WATER NOTICE - effective July 21, 2020

 

 




River Forecast Centre - High Streamflow Advisory Upper Fraser Downgraded issued July 17, 2020
JUL 17, 2020

Northeast Region – Flood Watch – Quesnel River (MAINTAINED) – High Streamflow Advisory – Upper Fraser (DOWNGRADED), Middle Fraser (MAINTAINED), Fraser River mainstem (MAINTAINED)

July 17, 2020

The River Forecast Centre is maintaining a Flood Watch for:

  • Quesnel River (MAINTAINED)

The River Forecast Centre is downgrading to or maintaining a High Streamflow Advisory for:

  • Upper Fraser River including tributaries like the McGregor River, Dore River and McKale River (DOWNGRADED)
  • Fraser River mainstem from Marguerite to Boston Bar (MAINTAINED)
  • Middle Fraser tributaries including areas around Williams Lake and 100 Mile House (MAINTAINED)

A pulse of water from a moderate rainfall event that occurred over the Upper Fraser and Cariboo regions Wednesday to Friday is slowly moving through rivers within the Upper Fraser region. Rainfall totals from Wednesday to Friday morning range from 10 to over 60 mm, the highest occurring at the Hedrick Lake (1A14P) automated snow weather station. Smaller rivers and tributaries within the region peaked late yesterday (July 17th) in response to this event and are now falling. Specifically, the McKale River near 940m Contour (08KA009) peaked near 82 m3/s (near a 5 year flow) late July 16th, and the Morkill River below Hellroaring Creek (08KA013) peaked at 270 m3/s (below a 2-year flow) late July 16th. The McGregor River peaked at 1450 m3/s (close to a 5 year flow) today and is just beginning to fall as of Friday afternoon (July 17th).

The Quesnel River is flowing at 1020 m3/s (10-year flow) and is expected to remain high during the following days due to the current rainfall. Water from rain this week is moving down the Fraser mainstem, driving currently increasing flows at Fraser at Prince George and higher flows forecasted for downstream Fraser sites. Peaks on the mainstem Fraser due to this event are expected to remain below 5-year flows at this time. The Fraser River near Marguerite is flowing at 4420 m3/s (between 1-year and 2-year flow), and is forecast to rise over the weekend. The San Jose River is flowing at 18.2 m3/s (between a 20-year and 50-year flow).  

Dry conditions expected for the weekend should help mitigate high flows; however, unsettled weather forecast for the following week could be problematic within systems that are already high.

Current conditions include:

  • McKale River near 940m Contour (08KA009) is flowing at 52.4 m3/s (1-2 year flow)
  • Morkill River below Hellroaring Creek (08KA013) is flowing at 225 m3/s (1-2 year flow)
  • Dore River near McBride (08KA001) is flowing at 67 m3/s (1-2 year flow)
  • McGregor River at Lower Canyon (08KB003) is flowing at 1440 m3/s (5 year flow)
  • Fraser River at Shelley (08KB001) is flowing at 2990 m3/s (1-2 year flow)
  • Fraser River at South Fort George (08KE018) is at 8.335 m (1-2 year flow)
  • Fraser River at Marguerite (08MC018) is flowing at 4420 m3/s (1-2 year flow)
  • Quesnel River at Quesnel (08KH006) is flowing at 1020 m3/s (10 year flow)
  • San Jose River above Borland Creek (08MC040) is flowing at 18.2 m3/s (20-50 year flow)

The public is advised to stay clear of the fast-flowing rivers and potentially unstable riverbanks during the high-streamflow period.

The River Forecast Centre continues to monitor the conditions and provides updates as conditions warrant.

Northeast Region – Flood Watch – Upper Fraser (NEW), Quesnel River (MAINTAINED) - High Streamflow Advisory –Middle Fraser (MAINTAINED), Fraser River mainstem (MAINTAINED)

ISSUED: 10:00 July 16, 2020

The River Forecast Centre is issuing a Flood Watch for:

  • Upper Fraser River, including tributaries like the McGregor River, Dore River and McKale River

The River Forecast Centre is maintaining a Flood Watch for:

  • Quesnel River

The River Forecast Centre is maintaining a High Streamflow Advisory for:

  • Fraser River mainstrem from Marguerite to Boston Bar
  • Middle Fraser tributaries including areas around Williams Lake and 100 Mile House

A moderate rainfall event is occurring over the Upper Fraser and Cariboo regions. As of Thursday morning, rainfall totals over the past 24-hours range from 5 to 35mm – the highest occurring at Hedrick Lake (1A14P) automated snow weather station. Since rivers have remained high due to heavy rain over the past three weeks, some tributaries of the Fraser River are rising rapidly from this rainfall event. The Dore River near McBride is flowing at 109 m3/s (between a 2-year and 5-year flow) and rising. The McKale River near 940m Contour (08KA009) is at flowing at 73 m3/s (between a 2-year and 5-year flow) and rising. The Morkill River below Hellroaring Creek (08KA013) is flowing at 240 m3/s (between 1-year and 2-year flow) and rising. The McGregor River is flowing at 982 m3/s (between 1-year and 2-year) and rising rapidly. Increases are expected in the Fraser River over the upcoming days due to the rainfall.

The Quesnel River remains very high and is flowing at 985 m3/s (10-year flow) and may rise again over the following days due to the current rainfall.  The Fraser River near Marguerite is flowing at 4360 m3/s (between 1-year and 2-year flow). The San Jose River is flowing at 18.4 m3/s (between 20-year and 50-year flow).  

Fortunately, dry conditions are expected for the weekend.  The following week may continue the recent trend of unsettled summer weather.

The public is advised to stay clear of the fast-flowing rivers and potentially unstable riverbanks during the high-streamflow period.

The River Forecast Centre continues to monitor the conditions and provides updates as conditions warrant.
