Water Safety Statement Issued for Sudbury

Conservation Sudbury is issuing a Water Safety statement for all parts of the Greater Sudbury watersheds effective immediately.

This statement will remain in effect until at least 10:00 AM on October 15, 2018.

The statement comes after significant rainfall in KICX Country.

Water levels in most streams remain high from the recent rains but are within the seasonal range.

If the forecast amount of rain is received, water levels will rise quickly and the runoff will result in

faster-flowing waters.

The developing conditions must be closely monitored by all residents especially those living in known

low-lying, hazard areas where overland flooding could become an issue.

Residents in the City of Greater Sudbury who may experience problems due to overland runoff or

flooding should call 3-1-1.

Public safety is absolutely the number one priority, especially for children who may be attracted to

the edge of creeks or rivers. The fast flowing water must be avoided. Stream banks will be very

slippery and unsafe, and must be avoided.

Conservation Sudbury remains in direct contact with the City of Greater Sudbury and all other

partners as required; staff continues with the monitoring of water levels and updates will be

provided as required.
