FLOOD WARNING IN EFFECT FOR KAWARTHA CONSERVATION WATERSHED
4/16/2018 6:57:22 AM
With more rain on the way today, water levels are becoming a concern in different parts of the region.
A Flood Warning remains in effect for the Kawartha Conservation watershed jurisdiction.
Water levels and flows in local rivers and streams within the watershed have increased significantly in response to the rain received over the last two days and the additional rain that is predicted, in combination with saturated or partly frozen ground conditions, will produce significant runoff that will further affect local watercourses.
In these circumstances water levels and flows in local rivers and streams will continue to rise and by Monday may exceed their bankfull levels in many locations.
Officials say flooding will happen in floodplains, low-lying areas, areas with poor drainage and road ditches.
