LSRCA - Watershed Conditions Statement

You are here

The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority advises that the watershed is expected to receive approximately 5mm of rain this afternoon, then 30-40mm on Sunday with an additional 5-10mm early next week. 

Forecast rainfall amounts will result in higher than normal water levels and flows in rivers and streams, creating potentially hazardous conditions. The combination of slippery and unstable banks and cold water temperatures will create hazardous conditions close to any river, stream or other water bodies. 

There is also a potential for flooding in low lying areas. 

Children should be warned to stay away from all watercourses.

This Watershed Conditions Statement will be in effect through Tuesday, April 16, 2018.
