- 40 to 50 mm of precipitation received in the past 24 hours throughout the region
- River levels expected to be very high for the next few days
- Fast flowing water and slippery stream banks
Extensive precipitation over the past few days has resulted in high flows in all watercourses. Water levels on the Sydenham River and its tributaries will be pushed to top of bank over the next few days and into the weekend. Forecasts are calling for clearing conditions however many rural areas including fields and floodplains are saturated from the recent rainfall. This has the potential for immediate run off into rivers and streams rapidly increasing flows.
Water levels will likely remain high over the next few days and early next week. Drains and smaller watercourses in upstream areas may also experience localized flooding in some areas especially during rain events.
Municipal emergency response staff and road superintendents should monitor local conditions closely.
Residents are reminded to avoid watercourses and flooded areas due to slippery banks. Parents in particular are urged to keep their children away from floodplain areas.
The St. Clair Region Conservation Authority will monitor the flood condition of the watersheds in the region and will provide warnings to municipal officials and media in the event conditions develop which could result in the potential of flooding.
This message will remain in effect until Monday, March 28th 2016 unless otherwise updated.
