Dangerous Tree removed from Puntledge River

A City of Courtenay contractor began the process of removing a dangerous fallen tree from the Puntledge River this past Friday, in anticipation of hot weather and hundreds of tubers that are expected on the river in the coming days.

A huge thanks to city staff and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans for coming up with a safe plan to remove it.

Rest assured that as soon as we know there’s any issues with the river we’re going to address it as quickly as possible, but we do want people to remember to remain as safe as possible out there.

Mayor, City of Courtenay
