That the mountain snow pack in the South Thompson is still about 26 per cent above normal.
“Stump Lake, I was at a public information meeting with Stump Lake residents a few days ago. And that lake is full and its got no way for the water to get out except through evaporation. Nicola Lake is full, the golf course at Quilchena is flooded.”
