Riverine Flood Watch Termination (Flood Message #2)February 25, 2022
The Flood Watch issued on Monday, February 21, 2022 for watercourses in the Long Point Region watershed is now terminated.
All watercourses across LPRCA’s watershed have peaked and are now declining, however stream levels remain high and are running swiftly, and there is still ponded water in low-lying areas. Additionally, snow pack remains in wooded areas and river ice and associated ice jams are still present.
Due to these conditions, LPRCA is issuing a Watershed Conditions Statement – Water Safety for all watercourses within its jurisdiction.
Members of the public are reminded to stay away from ditches, streams, rivers and ponds as the combination of slippery banks and cold, fast-flowing water is dangerous. Ice conditions on watercourses, ponds and reservoirs are expected to continue to deteriorate and should be considered unsafe. Parents are reminded to keep children and pets away from these areas.
Present conditions and flows from the past event can be viewed on the LPRCA website’s Flood Forecasting Data & Resources page.
LPRCA staff will continue to monitor weather forecasts and watershed conditions.
Contact Paul Gagnon at 519-842-4242 ext. 232 should further information be required.
