The majority of the evacuation order remains in place, but as of 3 p.m. Monday, the PRRD has downgraded the evacuation order to an alert for the property at 9819 240 road.  The property is located above the slide.

The evacuation alert for twelve properties, listed below, was also lifted Monday afternoon.

Westrek Geotechnical said last week some residents of the Old Fort could return home once the road into the community is finished.  The final geotechnical report on the slide should be completed by the middle of this week.  The report was supposed to be finished last week, but a large amount of new data from the Province was given to Westrek on Wednesday.

Once the PRRD receives the geotechnical report, the report will then be sent for a peer and legal reviews.  From there, the PRRD will determine the next steps for residents of the Old Fort.
