Dike Repairs

The cleanup and repair goes on from the aftermath of the Great Flood of 2010.  Progress each day is noticeable with more filled in road washouts, and comments from people about things underway.  One of the top priorities was to repair the breach in the dike which protects the Bella Coola Airport at the east end.  The water over topped the dike shortly after midnight on Saturday September 25th and quickly eroded out a piece of the rip rap then flooded the airport.  That area has all been repaired and now hopefully will be there for a long time again.

Good weather helped again today, but the Bella Coola River while getting down to a brisk fall level, is very brown, but I saw some hardy fishermen give it a try, but came up empty.  Grizzly
