Flood watches go both ways, with residents being able to receive and provide information on the constantly changing conditions.
South Nation Conservation monitors the water levels and weather forecasts as part of the its flood forecasting and warning program. Updates are provided as conditions change.
Visit www.nation.on.ca for information and to also provide feedback with respect to changes in water conditions in your area. All feedback can be sent to water[email protected]tion.on.ca, posted on Facebook (/SouthNationConservation), or Twitter (@SouthNationCA).
The ebb and flow of levels were evident last week as the region was frozen in freezing rain, doused in downpours and then frozen in a late winter freeze.
Residents are advised to exercise caution when they go near rivers as flows can rapidly increase river flows and cause slippery river banks. Parents are encouraged to explain these dangers to their children.
