Given the high water levels and strong current, the City of New Westminster is urging residents to remain aware and use caution when around the Fraser River shoreline, in particular Quayside, Port Royal, Braid Industrial Area, Sapperton Landing and other exposed and low lying areas adjacent to the Fraser or Brunette rivers.

Also, residents and visitors should remain aware when utilizing below ground parking areas adjacent to the Fraser River as they may experience minor flooding or seepage during high water levels.
