Officials keep eye on river

The Salmon River is running high and weather this week could play a critical role in potential flooding.

“We’re somewhere between mean annual flood level and a little beyond that,” said   David Campbell, section head at the province’s River Forecast Centre. “We’re seeing some steady rises along the full length of the river.”

Temperatures are expected to be lower than last week, and barring aggressive weather, the river should peak over the next week or so.
