Water Levels on the Rise

Regional | by Phil DeLand  

Officials will be keeping an eye on local watershed conditions over the next few days.

Plenty of rain today and tomorrow across our region.

Officials with Environment Canada say we could get between 20 and 30 mm of rain today and another 15 to 20 mm tomorrow.

They say we could get an additional 5 mm on Friday. 

Experts say flooding isn't expected along the Credit River or downstream areas, all watercourses in the watershed will experience higher water levels. 

They say local streams and rivers could become dangerous, especially around culverts, bridges and dams. 

Children should be warned to stay away from all watercourses.

 Credit Valley Conservation will continue to monitor weather and water levels in the watershed throughout the week. 

The Watershed Conditions Statement for Water Safety will be in effect through Friday November or until further notice.  

 For more information or to monitor the conditions you can head to www.creditvalleyca.ca/watershed-science/watershed-monitoring/real-time-monitoring.

 You can also call CVC during office hours at 905- 670-1615 but to report a flood you should call 1-800-215-8505.
