WATERSHED CONDITIONS Flood Outlook Statement

Conditions are favourable for the development of dangerous thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and torrential rain.

Flooding of the Credit River and its major tributaries are not expected.  However, intense rainfall associated with thunderstorms may result in flooding of small headwater and urban areas.  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 to stay away from all watercourses. 

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 Sunday, June 21, 2020 or until further notice.
