Water Safety Statement

Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) is advising that a spring storm system is forecast to move into our watershed late this evening and overnight bringing risk of thunderstorms and 15 to 20 mm of heavy rain. Periods of rain will be ending near Friday at noon bringing an additional 10 to 15 mm of rainfall. 5 to 10 mm of rain is forecasted for Saturday.

While flooding of the Credit River and its major tributaries is not expected, higher water levels and flows will result in local streams and rivers becoming dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts, bridges and dams. The public is advised to stay away from all watercourses, especially children and pets. Residents living near watercourses are advised to remove or secure all loose items in the floodplain. 

CVC will continue to closely monitor weather and water levels in the watershed. The Watershed Conditions Statement for Water Safety will be in effect through Sun-Mar-28-2021 or until further notice.
