Conservation Halton (CH) has issued a Watershed Conditions Statement. The forecast calls for approximately 20-30 mm of rain beginning today, lasting into tomorrow.
Ground conditions within our jurisdiction remain saturated in areas and combined with the forecasted precipitation will result in increased water levels and flows within our rivers and streams over the next several days.
Widespread flooding is not anticipated, however fast flowing water and flooding of low lying areas and natural floodplains may be expected.
Conservation Halton is asking all residents and children to keep a safe distance from all watercourses and structures such as bridges, culverts and dams. Elevated water levels, fast flowing water, and slippery conditions along stream banks continue to make these locations extremely dangerous. Please alert children in your care of these imminent dangers.
Conservation Halton will continue to monitor stream and weather conditions and will issue an update to this Watershed Condition Statement –Water Safety message as conditions warrant.
This Watershed Condition Statement will be in effect through Friday May 3, 2019.
