Conservation Halton Warns Residents of High Water Levels

Conservation Halton advises that Environment Canada is forecasting rain beginning this evening and ending by tomorrow afternoon with expected amounts ranging from 25 mm to 50 mm.

This precipitation, in conjunction with saturated ground conditions will result in higher than normal water levels and flows in local streams. No flooding is anticipated at this time.

Conservation Halton is asking all residents and children to stay away from watercourses and structures such as bridges, culverts and dams. Elevated water levels, fast flowing water, and slippery conditions along stream banks make these locations extremely dangerous. Please alert children in your care of these imminent dangers.

Conservation Halton will continue to monitor stream flow and weather conditions and will issue further messages as necessary.

These conditions are expected to last until Tuesday March 29.

Winds are also expected to be high today starting in the southwest, and shifting to the northwest as the day progresses.  Gusts of wind could reach 80km/hr this afternoon.  Report any hydro outages to Milton Hydro at: 1-844-NoHydro (664-9376)
