Flood Warning Terminated; Water Safety advised (Event message #5)

January 14, 2020

The flood warning message for Vienna is now Terminated.

Water levels in Big Otter Creek through Vienna have now declined sufficiently that a flood warning message is no longer necessary.

Most watercourses across the LPRCA have peaked and are now declining. However stream levels remain high and are still running out of their banks in some areas affecting low-lying areas.

Due to these conditions, LPRCA is issuing a Watershed Conditions Statement – Water Safety for all watercourses within its jurisdiction. People are reminded to stay away from ditches, streams, rivers and ponds as the combination of slippery banks and cold, fast-flowing water is dangerous. Parents are reminded to keep children and pets away from these areas.

LPRCA staff will continue to monitor watershed conditions and will update this message as necessary.

This water safety message is in effect until noon, Monday, January 20, 2020.

Contact Ben Hodi, 519-842-4242 ext. 264 should further information be required.
