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

For more information, please contact at Omar Kana’n (613) 984-2948 ext. 309 or

Sandra Mancini at (613) 551-3242.

This statement is in effect until Friday, November 10, 2017.
