WATERSHED CONDITIONS STATEMENT – Water Safety

The forecast for Southern Ontario calls for 15 to 30 mm of rain beginning this afternoon and continuing through into Wednesday.

While flooding is not expected, the forecasted rainfall amounts will result in higher than normal water levels and flows in our watercourses. The combination of slippery and unstable banks and cold water temperature will create hazardous conditions close to any river, stream or other water bodies. Children should be warned to stay away from all watercourses.

CVC will continue to closely monitor weather and water levels in the watershed. This Watershed Conditions Statement for Water Safety will be in effect through Thur-Apr-05-2018 or until further notice.
