Flash Flood in Clearwater on August 2, 2016:
The heavy rainfall on August 2, 2016 resulted in flash flooding and some parts of the community were harder hit – Weyerhaeuser Subdivision, Clearwater Flats, Park Drive area and Wyndhaven. The District contacted the Provincial Government for Disaster Financial Assistance (DFA); however, they determined that the event did not qualify as a “disaster”.

Books Needed to Raise Money for the School’s Literacy Program
Do you have books that are now looking for a new home, or maybe you would like to find a book you haven’t yet read?  The District of Clearwater has set up a table of pre-loved books for you to purchase by donation.  We are currently looking for book donations – all proceeds go to the Clearwater Secondary School and Raft River Elementary Literacy Programs.
