In an ironic twist, Faulder now has too much water! Darke Creek, which is typically just a dry culvert has overflowed with the higher-than-normal volume of snow melt.
The critical issues for Faulder residents (apart from personal property damage) are the status of the the main road and upstream dam on Darke/Fish Lake. Rural roads and dams are the responsibility of the province, not the RDOS. However, we checked with the relevant provincial ministries on May 17, 2011. The Ministry of the Environment is aware of the situation and is monitoring the dam; the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is monitoring Fish Lake Road.
