Lake levels have been forecast to potentially exceed the highwater elevations observed in 2012 as early as the end of May. These high levels combined with snowmelt run-off and rain-fall are creating conditions that could ultimately lead to flooding at Lakeside Park, the Lakeside Sports Fields, the dogwalk/Airport area and the waterfront pathway along Sproat Drive. City of Nelson personnel are currently monitoring lake levels, creek flow, bridges and culverts to ensure water is moving freely.
Sandbags and sand have been made available by the City and are located under the Big Orange Bridge, adjacent to Lakeside Park.
