Watershed conditions statement

Kawartha Conservation has issued a Watershed Conditions Statement-Water Safety which is in effect through Thursday.

With the rainfall and strong winds, higher than normal water levels and flows in local rivers and streams are expected though there will most likely not be any flooding.

The combination of slippery and unstable banks with cold water temperature will create hazardous conditions around all water bodies, especially near culverts and bridges.

Children should be warned to stay away from all watercourses.
