Post Flood Update

Issued at 4:00 p.m. June 26, 2017

As was reported on the Town’s website and through social media, all Town of Mono and Dufferin County roads were open by Saturday morning. Town Roads Crews continue to repair edge of road and culvert washouts; however, have been hampered by ongoing rain. Stabilization of washouts will continue over the next several weeks.

The Town wishes to thank its residents for their cooperation during the flooding. Our top priority is always the residents’ safety.

We are working with the province to implement the provincial “Disaster Recovery Assistance for Ontarians” program which provides financial assistance to private landowners following natural disasters. More information about this program and eligibility is available at

Residents are cautioned to remain clear of watercourses as many are still running high. Please refer to Credit Valley Conservation and Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority websites for the latest flood updates.

Care should also be exercised if your private well was near any flooded areas. More information on private well safety is available on Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph’s website at

The Town wants to recognize and thank the efforts of both Town & County Roads Crews and First Responders for their efforts during the flood event.

Flood Watch Update

Updated at 10:30 a.m. June 24, 2017

Due to heavy rainfall throughout the County, with some areas receiving over 100 mm of rain since Thursday, the Town has experienced significant flooding. Public Works road crews have been diligently working since early morning to address flooded and washed out roads.

Staff, in concert with local conservation authorities, have been monitoring water levels at numerous locations in Town. Flood watches & warnings remain in effect in the Nottawasaga, Credit Valley and Grand Valley Conservation watersheds.

The Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority (NVCA) has confirmed that 113 mm of rain fell over a several hour period, classifying it as an 100 year storm event. They confirmed that water levels peaked in Dufferin County around 1 p.m. on Friday.

Residents are encouraged to avoid flooded areas where possible.

Some of our watercourses are at or above their banks but are receding. Flooding of low lying areas has ocurred with water levels remaining high through the weekend. As a result, local streams and rivers are dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts, bridges and dams. Children should be warned to stay away from all watercourses.

Evacuation & Shelter Information

Dufferin Community Services has coordinated with the Red Cross to ensure that anyone needing disaster assistance after hours or during the weekend can access services by calling the Red Cross Personal Disaster Assistance line at 416-676-8559.

Residents can dial 211 after hours for information regarding emergency shelter. People with VOIP phones can dial 1-866-743-7818 as they won’t be able to dial a 3-digit code.

Mono Senior of the Year Award

Derek Spencer received the 2017 Mono Senior of the Year Award.

In Ontario, June is recognized as Senior’s month and in honour of this month, the Town of Mono chose to recognize an individual who has made our community a better place to live, Mr. Derek Spencer!

Starting in 2009, the Town of Mono, the Town of Orangeville, Credit Valley Conservation and the Friends of Island Lake were engaged in building a ten km accessible trail around the perimeter of Island Lake, known as the Island Lake Community Trail System. From the initial construction phase to the completion of the trail in 2015, to the present day, Mr. Spencer has been an exemplary volunteer and ambassador for this trail system.

During the construction of the trail, Mr. Spencer volunteered on a daily basis with doing whatever he could to help out. Tasks ranging from painting the foundation timber end cuts, cutting boards for the bridges and boardwalks, screwing in boards on the boardwalks and railings and even picking up garbage left by the construction crew were all tasks that Mr. Spencer took on with pride and enthusiasm.

As each section of the trail was completed Mr. Spencer, along with his companion Baxter (a very special sheltie), could be seen hiking the trail on a daily basis, keeping his eye out for any type of liability that may have occurred, such as fallen branches, loose boards, etc. and reporting the hazard to staff. And if the liability was something Mr. Spencer could handle himself, he very often did. It is not uncommon to see Mr. Spencer hiking the trail with a pair of clippers in his hands, or filling in a hole that is a tripping hazard.

Derek Spencer - Senior of the Year

If Mr. Spencer is not hiking or inspecting the trail, then he is volunteering at one of the trails special events, such as Seniors Day on the Trail and the Maple Syrup Festival held at Island Lake. Since January 1, 2015 Mr. Spencer and Baxter have not missed one day hiking the trail. Hikers on the trail are always greeted with his smile; friendly wave and tail wag from Baxter.

Mr. Spencer is an enthusiastic, tireless, compassionate, humble volunteer. He is an inspiring citizen of our community and one we are proud to present with Mono’s Senior of the Year Award for 2017.

Derek and Baxter were both on hand to receive the award from Mayor Ryan.

2017 Fire Hydrant Flushing

Please be aware that from April 24 to June 30, 2017 between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday each week Water Works Staff will be completing fire hydrant flushing and maintenance of the Cardinal Woods & the Coles/Island Lake/Purple Hill water systems. The programs are completed on a regular basis to ensure the fire hydrants remain in good working order and that any accumulated sediments in the watermains are removed.

Due to possible sedimentation, the flushing may cause discolouration of the water, so please check your cold water supply before using. If discolouration does occur, let the cold water run until it clears.

Users are also reminded that Water Works Staff will continue to regularly flush fire hydrants in some areas on subsequent Wednesdays as part of an ongoing maintenance program. Again, the water should be checked for discolouration before use on those days.

Your cooperation and understanding during the fire hydrant flushing and maintenance program is appreciated.
