The City of Williams Lake’s Emergency Operations Centre has extended the State of Local Emergency (SOLE) originally declared on September 29, 2023 due to potential land movement at 500 Wotzke Drive, known as Terra Ridge.
The SOLE extension is required by legislation to be renewed weekly and is a precautionary measure for four units currently under an evacuation order and 76 units currently under an evacuation alert.
The City is now working with the Ministry of Emergency Management and Climate Readiness to complete both geological and structural engineering assessments and has made emergency supports available to residents while awaiting results.
The City is continuing to monitor the situation from its Emergency Operations Centre and will provide updates as they are available, and is working diligently to ensure Terra Ridge residents have all available services being offered to them. The residents and property under evacuation order and alert remain the City’s primary focus.
To reach the Emergency Operations Centre please call 250-392-2311 Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
