show full reporthide full reportUpdated: 6:08am Thursday 17 Aug 2017 - Unfortunately we are CLOSED today. Gale force winds are battering... the top lift stations and we've had torrential rain overnight. The snow pack is in good condition and is allowing the water to drain through to the ground. We'll be back in action tomorrow! Heavy rain and gale force winds are forecast to remain throughout the day. We will see some snow later this evening and it's forecast to hang around all weekend!
