UPDATE: July 15, 2024: The TNRD is informing residents of Savona about two additional curbside collection days for flood debris, which will take place on July 18 and 23, 2024. For more information, click here.

Original: July 10, 2024: The TNRD Emergency Operations Center has remained in close contact with the Savona Improvement District and impacted residents since the flash floods that occurred Sunday, June 30, 2024.

The initial debris removal took place Monday July 8 and we are able to offer additional debris removal to Savona residents impacted by the flooding event as a continued partnership with the Skeetchestn Indian Band and Savona Improvement District. 

An additional curbside collection will take place on Thursday July 11, 2024.  The Savona Improvement District will continue supporting the distribution of 6 mil disposal bags for community members to use for clean-up of certain items. 

To facilitate the curbside collection, flood affected residents should sort debris into the following piles:

  • Drywall and asbestos containing materials (please keep separate, double bag in 6 mil bags)
  • Mattresses, metal, large appliances, and furniture (stacked neatly)  
  • Any spoiled food must be removed from fridges/freezers and double bagged
  • Wood and large building debris
  • Bagged refuse (food waste should be double bagged and placed at curbside Thursday morning before 830 a.m.)
  • No hazardous or liquid materials such as oil, gas or other chemicals will be accepted curbside

Skeetchestn Indian Band volunteers, and the TNRD contractors will not be entering structures or private property to remove material or assist with clean up. 

Impacted residents should check with their insurer and take photos for any claims through your insurer or other disaster financial assistance.  If you have incurred disposal fees, please keep your receipts as they may be reimbursable by your insurance provider or other disaster funding (if available). 

For information on what to do before, during and after flooding events you can access both the TNRD and Interior Health resources online.
