NVCA Flood Outlook | 12 May 2017

Flood Potential: Low

Weather Conditions

Flood potential - Low

No significant rainfall is currently forecast for the next few days.

Issues

Rainfall from the first week of May is making its way through the Minesing Wetlands towards Wasaga Beach. Water levels in the Lower Nottawasaga River from the Minesing Wetlands to Wasaga Beach remain high. Flow at the Water Survey of Canada gauge at Edenvale Conservation Area peaked at 111 cubic metres per second on May 9 and have declined to 100 cubic metres per second today. By comparison, the one-in-five year peak flow at this location is 160 cubic metres per second. Water levels are expected to slowly decline and no additional flooding is anticipated at this time. However, stream banks may be slippery and unstable, which combined with cold water temperatures can create hazardous conditions.

Actions

Please exercise caution around all rivers and streams, in particular near the Lower Nottawasaga River. Hazardous conditions may exist around all waterbodies, as there is a high risk of life-threatening injury if a person falls into the cold, fast-flowing water.

The Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority continues to monitor river and stream conditions and will issue additional messages as conditions warrant. This Flood Outlook Statement will be in effect until 4:30 p.m., Tuesday May 16, 2017.

For additional information, please call 705-424-1479 and select option '1' for the flood information line or check online at www.nvca.on.ca.

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.

Spring Safety: Take Caution near Waterways

The Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority reminds everyone to stay well back from waterways, ditches, ponds and lakes this time of year.

NVCA logo

With spring-like temperatures arriving in February, unsafe ice and slippery banks already exist. The onset of spring has brought rain and melting snow, causing the breakup of ice along watercourses and lakes and high stream flows. These hazardous conditions can cause life-threatening injury if a person falls into the extremely cold water.

Conservation Authorities across the region remind residents to keep family and pets away from the edge of streams, rivers, ponds and lakes at this time of year. Especially during March Break, it is important to supervise children and help them understand the dangers of playing near creeks and streams. Anglers, canoeists, hikers, hunters and other recreational users need to be aware of the dangerous conditions that could pose a risk to personal safety.

Please exercise caution around any waterbody over the next few weeks and help make this a safe and enjoyable spring.

The NVCA continues to monitor waterways and will issue flood messages as conditions warrant.
