This Sunday’s weather forecast calls for 10mm of rain with a high of +8ºC for the mid watershed areas. 

As of March 1st, there was approximately 120mm of water stored in the snow pack for the upper and middle watersheds.  The mixture of frozen ground conditions, rain, above freezing temperatures and melting of the remaining snowpack will result in increased water levels for the watercourses throughout the watershed. 

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.  The Flood Outlook Statement will be in effect through Monday, March 11, 2013 or until further notice. 

For more information on this Flood Outlook Statement please contact the CVC during office ours at 905-670-1615.  In the event of an afterhours flood emergency please call 1-800-215-8505.
