Credit Valley Conservation advises that watercourses within the watershed have peaked and are currently receding. However, flows and water levels are still high and conditions can be dangerous. Forecasted thunderstorms can cause flash flooding, especially in highly urbanized watersheds.
All watercourses in our area will experience higher than normal water levels. As a result, local streams and rivers will become dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts, bridges and dams. 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 until Wednesday July 10th or until further notice.
For more information on this Flood Watch cancellation, please contact the CVC office during office ours at 905- 670-1615. In the event of an afterhours flood emergency, call 1-800-215-8505.
