WATERSHED CONDITIONS: WATER SAFETY STATEMENT
September 22, 2021
Environment Canada is forecasting rainfall amounts of 40 to 60 mm by early Friday morning.
The South Nation River Watershed is currently experiencing a minor drought (Level 1 – Low Water Condition), with river flows that are below normal for this time of year. Water flows are expected to increase over the coming days with the forecasted rainfall.
Rainfall is likely to produce higher water levels and possible nuisance flooding in low-lying areas across the jurisdiction.
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.
This water safety statement is in effect until Monday, September 27, 2021, at 5:00 PM or until an update has been issued.
SNC monitors the water levels and weather forecasts as part of the Flood Forecasting and Warning Program. Updates are provided as conditions change.
