Watershed Conditions – Water Safety Statement

30-Jun-2017 24-Jul-2017

This bulletin is a general safety notice to the public.  Water levels are currently higher than normal for this time of year and continue to rise due to recent rainfall.  An additional 15 mm of precipitation is forecasted for tomorrow. The forecasted rain will further increase the water levels.

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.

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

The public is encouraged to visit and to also report changes in water-related conditions, soil stress fractures (i.e. cracks in soil), abrupt changes in streambanks, or sudden leaning of trees in their local areas. All feedback and photos can be sent to, posted on our Facebook page (/SouthNationConservation), or Tweeted to us (@SouthNationCA).

For more information please contact the Flood Duty Officers: Geoff Owens at 613-551-9170 or Sandra Mancini at 613-551-3242.

This statement is in effect until Tuesday, July 4, 2017.
