WATERSHED CONDITIONS: WATER SAFETY STATEMENT

October 30, 2019

South Nation Conservation (SNC) is issuing a Water Safety Statement for its jurisdiction in Eastern Ontario.

Weather Forecast:
Significant rainfall of 30 to 50 mm is forecasted for October 30th until November 1st, 2019.

Environmental Conditions:
Water levels across the jurisdiction are normal for this time of year but are expected to increase within the coming days.

Risks:
Rainfall is likely to produce high water levels and possible nuisance flooding in low-lying areas across the jurisdiction.

ACTION:
Residents are advised to exercise caution when near rivers as the forecasted weather may rapidly increase river flows and cause slippery riverbanks. Parents are encouraged to explain these dangers to their children.

Duration:
This statement is in effect until Friday, November 8th, 2019 at 5:00 PM.

SNC monitors the water levels and weather forecasts as part of the Flood Forecasting and Warning Program. Updates are provided as conditions change.

FLOOD WATCH DOWNGRADED: Saint Lawrence River  

September 27, 2019

South Nation Conservation (SNC) has downgraded the Flood Watch for the Saint Lawrence River issued on August 20th, 2019 to a Water Safety Statement.

Weather Forecast:
Rainfall amounts of 10 – 15 mm are forecasted for later this evening through to Saturday, September 28th.

Environmental Conditions:
Lake Ontario’s water levels are declining but are still expected to remain near seasonal highs over the next several weeks.

Flooding and other high-water impacts continue to be reported around the upper Saint Lawrence River during periods of active weather.

Risks:
The latest forecast from the International Lake Ontario – St. Lawrence River Board suggests that Lake Ontario’s water levels are expected to decline over the next several weeks, with the rate of decline largely depending on rainfall.

Lake Ontario’s increased outflows may increase Saint Lawrence River levels upstream of Iroquois throughout Edwardsburg/Cardinal and Augusta Township.

Residents are advised that wind may cause large waves, further aggravating water levels which may affect structures close to shore.

ACTION:

Residents in flood-prone areas are encouraged to closely monitor conditions and take necessary actions.

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

Residents in flood prone or low-lying areas historically susceptible to flooding are encouraged to closely follow evolving conditions and take necessary precautions to protect their property.

Duration:
This Watershed Conditions Statement is in effect until Friday, November 1, 2019 at 5:00 PM.

SNC monitors the water levels and weather forecasts as part of the Flood Forecasting and Warning Program. Updates are provided as conditions change.

The International Lake Ontario – St. Lawrence River Board continues to monitor conditions on an ongoing basis. Information on hydrologic conditions, water levels and outflows, including graphics and photos, are available on the Board’s website at www.ijc.org/en/loslrb.
