Time: 4:00 pm

South Nation Conservation (SNC) is downgrading the Flood Watch Statement, which expired November 7, 2017 to a Water Safety Statement for the SNC jurisdiction.

Rain gauges within the region have recorded between 5 and 20 mm since November 3. Environment and Climate Change Canada forecasts below-freezing temperatures and periods of rain between 1 to 5 mm in the upcoming week.

With the forecasted weather conditions; severe flooding is not a concern at this time; however, nuisance flooding in low-lying areas may still be observed.

Residents are advised to stay away from watercourses where flows are high and where banks might be unstable.  Parents are encouraged to explain these dangers to their children.

SNC will continue to monitor the water levels and weather forecasts as part of the Flood Forecasting and Warning Program and will provide updates as conditions change.

SNC encourages the public to visit www.nation.on.ca and to also provide feedback with respect to changes in water related conditions in their local areas. All feedback can be sent to waterwatch@nation.on.ca; posted on our Facebook (/SouthNationConservation), or Tweet us your photos (@SouthNationCA).

WATERSHED CONDITIONS – FLOOD WATCH – UPDATE

November 3, 2017                                                                                         

Time: 2:00 pm

The purpose of this bulletin is to provide information regarding the forecasted weather and the potential of flooding throughout the South Nation Conservation jurisdiction.

Rain gauges within the region have recorded between 15 and 40 mm since November 1st, 2017. Environment Canada is forecasting an additional 50 to 60 mm of rainfall this weekend, with showers ending on Monday morning.

Water levels are expected to increase due to saturated soil conditions associated with the potential rainfall, which may cause flooding. In addition, some access roads may need to be closed due to flooding. There is also potential for blocked storm drains, catch basins and culverts which may also cause localized flooding.

Residents are advised to stay away from rivers as the forecasted weather may rapidly increase river flows, and cause slippery river banks. Parents are encouraged to explain these dangers to their children.

SNC will continue to monitor the water levels and weather forecasts as part of the Flood Forecasting and Warning Program and will provide updates as conditions change.

SNC encourages the public to visit www.nation.on.ca and to also provide feedback with respect to changes in water related conditions in their local areas.
