The City of Kimberley is advising residents to keep clear of Mark Creek as the spring freshet continues. With upper elevations including the Mark Creek Watershed just beginning to run off, creek levels can change rapidly.
Flows are extremely fast when water levels are high and present an extreme danger to anyone falling in the creek.
While the creek is currently not running particularly quickly, a couple of days of heat or rain can cause a drastic change.
Residents are asked to keep children and pets away from the creek banks during the freshet.
