Warm weather means a quick snow melt
On Monday, Feb. 11, Credit Valley Conservation issued a Flood Outlook Statement at 4:30 p.m, warning residents to stay away from culverts and water intake structures.

The Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) forecast suggests that parts of southern Ontario could receive upwards of 10-15cm of precipitation for the remainder of Monday.

While no major flooding is anticipated, daytime temperatures are expected to range from 0 to +5 degrees for the remainder of today and throughout the week into this Friday. Melting snow due to milder temperatures combined with precipitation could result in higher than normal stream flow and cause minor flooding of low lying areas along the Credit River.

Areas adjacent to watercourses, especially near culverts and intake structures, may become dangerous because of high flows and should be avoided.

Parents and caregivers should alert any children under their care of these dangers and avoid areas with high flows.

CVC will continue to closely monitor weather and water levels in the watershed. This Flood Outlook Statement will be in effect through to Friday or until further notice.
