WATERSHED CONDITIONS STATEMENT
DATE: OCTOBER 30, 2012
ISSUED TO: SCHOOL BOARDS, MUNICIPALITIES, LOCAL CONSERVATION AUTHORITIES, LOCAL POLICE, EMERGENCY SERVICES AND MEDIA
Toronto and Region Conservation advises that the threat of flooding in our jurisdiction due to the remnants of Hurricane Sandy is over. The latest forecast from Environment Canada is calling for light rain off and on until Thursday.
Given the steady rainfall that is expected, water levels and flow within the watercourses will remain higher than normal, and are expected to continue to be elevated throughout the week. Please exercise caution around all bodies of water, alert any children under your care of these dangers, and supervise their activities. After any rainfall event, rivers should be considered dangerous.
This Watershed Conditions Statement will be in effect through Friday November 2nd, 2012. For more information please contact the on-call Flood Duty Officer.
