FLOOD OUTLOOK STATEMENT

Credit Valley Conservation advises that Environment Canada is forecasting the potential for significant rainfall, starting today through to Friday morning from a low-pressure system approaching from the southwest. Accumulated rainfall amounts of up to 50 millimetres are possible, with the heaviest rain occurring on Thursday afternoon. 

While flooding of the Credit River and its major tributaries is not expected, rainfall associated with this system may result in flooding of low laying and urban areas.

Localized flooding may occur on roadways where leaf litter blocks storm drains. Some watersheds may respond with higher flows and water levels.  As a result, local streams and rivers could become dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts, bridges and dams. 

Children should be warned about the dangers and pets kept away from watercourses.  

CVC will continue to closely monitor weather and water levels in the watershed. The Watershed Conditions Statement for Flood Outlook will be in effect through Saturday November 2, 2019, or until further notice. To view current watershed conditions, please visit our real-time monitoring website:  https://cvc.ca/watershed-science/watershed-monitoring/real-time-monitoring/
