Watershed conditions - water safety

The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority has received 50-60 mm of combined rain and snow within the past 24 hours. Higher than normal water levels and flows within local streams and rivers are expected to persist over the next few days due to saturated soil conditions and snowmelt. The combination of slippery banks, and cold-water temperatures will create hazardous conditions near rivers or other water bodies.

While widespread flooding is not expected, the possibility for flooding in various low-lying areas of the watershed exists.  Watercourses will be flowing higher than normal causing local streams and rivers to become dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts and bridges. Children should be warned to stay away from all watercourses.

This watershed conditions statement will be in effect through Saturday, April 6, 2024.
