City reminds residents to watch for high water near rivers and lakes


With the recent heavy rains and winds, the City of Nanaimo would like to remind the public to be careful and use caution when walking trails, boardwalks, stairs and bridges. Many of the City's trails and playground equipment areas are either wet and slippery or, in some locations, near fast moving water.

The Nanaimo and other rivers in and around town are flowing quickly, and may be carrying debris.
