Time:

11:30 PM

 Conservation Halton advises that as of 11:30 PM rain gauges throughout the watershed have recorded rainfall totals up to 15 mm over the last 24 hours.  The weather system currently passing through the watershed may bring an additional 10 mm of rain overnight prior to ending Tuesday morning.  These rainfall amounts combined with saturated ground conditions will result in elevated water levels and increased flows in local creeks.  Further, milder temperatures and melting ice may contribute to blockages at bridges and culverts and produce localized flooding concerns in low lying areas. 

Widespread flooding is not currently anticipated.  Our reservoirs are currently at winter holding levels which allows for larger storage capacity for circumstances of this nature. 

Conservation Halton is asking all residents and children to keep a safe distance from all watercourses and structures such as bridges, culverts and dams.  Elevated water levels, fast flowing water, and slippery conditions along stream banks continue to make these locations extremely dangerous.  Please alert children in your care of these imminent dangers. 

Conservation Halton will continue to monitor stream and weather conditions and will issue an update to this Watershed Condition Statement –Water Safety message as conditions warrant. 

This Watershed Condition Statement will be in effect through Wednesday January 24, 2018.

Note: A Watershed Conditions Statement – Water Safety is issued when high flows, unsafe banks, melting ice or other factors that could be dangerous for recreational users such as anglers, canoeist, hikers, children, pets, etc.  Flooding is not expected.
