FORT ST. JOHN – The Peace River Regional District has lifted a public safety advisory to stay off the Beatton River after a landslide that occurred on Oct. 19.

The PRRD had advised the public to steer clear of the Beatton north of Fort St. John after the slide occurred on the north side of the Beatton River Bridge on Cecil Lake Road, blocking the river.

The public was asked to stay off the river, and avoid banks south of where it connects to the Doig River.

The PRRD lifted the advisory on Nov. 27 in consultation with the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.

However, anyone on or near the river is being asked to use caution and watch for loose soil on the banks.

Other than monitoring the site, no further actions are planned, according to a PRRD press release.
