No major flooding expected – NVCA

Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority advises that Environment Canada has issued a rainfall warning covering our river basin.

The remnants of Hurricane Beryl will move into southern Ontario and could bring locally heavy rainfall over the next 12 to 72 hours.

Rainfall of 40-60 mm is forecast, with heavier rainfall possible in the event of thunderstorms or heavy rain.

No major flooding is expected, but it may occur in low-lying areas.

Serious hazards can result from slippery and unstable stream banks and fast-flowing, turbid water.

Use caution near all bodies of water.

Members of the public, especially children, are advised to stay away from all watercourses, bridges, culverts and dams.

Warn all children in your care about these dangers and supervise their activities.

Please avoid driving through flooded roads.

The Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority continues to monitor river and stream conditions and will issue additional advisories as the situation warrants.

This Catchment Status Statement will be valid until 4pm on Friday 12th July 2024.
