Water levels in both Lake Erie and Ontario are slowly declining but remain at record levels for this time of year. 

The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority is out with its flood outlook report which says levels on Lake Erie remain 70 centimeters above average and 6 centimers above the record high set back in September of 1986.  

Lake Ontario's water level is still 53 centimeters above average for this time of year. 

Residents and stakeholders with interests along both shorelines are urged to pay close attention to any weather systems that generate strong winds resulting in damaging storm surges that could cause erosion and localized flooding. 

Water levels on both Lakes will continue their slow decline but will remain above average into the winter months. 

The NPCA is monitoring the situation closely and will provide updates as required.
