The Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority advises that Environment Canada has issued a Rainfall Warning covering our watershed. The remnants of Hurricane Beryl will move into Southern Ontario and may produce localized heavy rainfall over the next 12-72 hours. 

Approximately 40 to 60 mm of rain is forecast, with higher amounts possible if thunderstorms or torrential downpours occur.  No major flooding is anticipated; however, flooding may occur in low lying areas.  Significant hazards may be present due to slippery or unstable stream banks, and fast flowing, turbid water. 

Please exercise caution around all bodies of water.  The public and especially children are advised to stay away from all watercourses, bridges, culverts and dams.  Alert any children under your care of these dangers and supervise their activities.  Please avoid driving through flooded roadways. 

The Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority continues to monitor river and stream conditions and will issue additional messages as conditions warrant. This Watershed Condition Statement will be in effect until 4:00PM, Friday July 12, 2024.
