The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page -

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.
