The Province has announced $740,000 in funding to go towards protecting commercial and residential properties in the Village from the threat of floods.

In a Feb. 24 press release Stikine MLA Doug Donaldson said the project will include the installation of flood boxes within the Village and raising of both the Riverside Street and Eddy Park Dikes.

“This work will help keep people and properties in Telkwa safe,” said Donaldson. “This funding is important for empowering communities, especially those like Telkwa with little non-residential property tax, to make important improvements to disaster resiliency.”
