25-Feb-2014 25-Feb-2014

SOUTH NATION WATERSHED – South Nation Conservation (SNC) is ending the Watershed Conditions Statement: Flood Outlook issued on February 19, 2014.

Last week we have experienced some localized snow melt and water ponding in low areas but no major flooding has been reported. The snow cover has decreased throughout the watershed.    Environment Canada forecasted below freezing temperature for the current and next week.  The watercourses are expected to be back in normal winter condition. 

SNC continues to caution residents along watercourses to be aware of hazards associated with cold fast flowing water and dam operations.  Parents are encouraged to explain these dangers to their children.

SNC 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.  

SNC encourages the public to visit our webpage at and to also provide feedback with respect to changes in water related conditions in their local areas (i.e. high water elevations, road inundation, ice break-up, etc.).   All enquiries can be sent to Sandra Mancini or Golam Sharif at or  For additional information please contact at SNC 1-877-984-2948 ext. 223 or 373.
