The RDEK is starting in-stream work in Jane Creek to break up an ice jam that has caused overland flooding.
RDEK officials said a small excavator will be working on the affected section this morning.
“We applied for and have now received an Order to undertake in-stream works,” says Information Officer Loree Duczek.
“The work will be focused on removing enough ice and dealing with an area of choked vegetation to alleviate the problem.”
Approximately 6-8 properties have been affected and the work is expected to take one to two days to complete.
