CVC Flood Outlook - August 2, 2017

Flood potential - Moderate

Environment Canada has issued the severe thunderstorm watch for the Upper Credit River watershed (Orangeville, Caledon). Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing up to 50 mm of heavy rain.

Also, the Credit Valley Conservation advises that the upper part of the watershed (Orangeville) have received yesterday 80-85 mm of rain. Soils are saturated and water levels in the Upper Credit River are elevated after a cluster of severe thunderstorms passed through the Credit River watershed yesterday afternoon.

As a result, local streams and rivers will become dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts, bridges and dams. Children should be warned to stay away from all watercourses.

The high water levels and velocities along the watercourse may be dangerous for kayaking, canoeing, tubing or any other form of recreational activity. The public is urged to execute caution and stay away from fast flowing waters.

Flood Watch for the Lake Ontario Shorelines issued on Jul-14-2017 remains in effect.

CVC will continue to closely monitor weather and water levels in the watershed. This Flood Outlook Statement will be in effect through Sat-Aug-05-2017 or until further notice.
