Watershed Conditions Statement – Water Safety Statement(Event message 1)

April 11, 2024

The Long Point Region Conservation Authority is issuing a Watershed Conditions Statement – Water Safety Statement for its entire watershed.

Flood Status Indicator: Water Safety Statement

The low-pressure system that moved into the Long Point Region watershed overnight has resulted in 10 to 20 mm of rainfall across our watershed. Another 25 to 30 mm is forecasted from Thursday evening to Saturday morning. Under the forecasted conditions, riverine water levels and flows will increase. At this point in time no major flooding is expected to occur; however, localized flooding may occur in low lying areas, and regions with poor drainage.

People are warned to stay away from ditches, water bodies, streams, rivers and ponds as the combination of slippery banks and cold, fast-flowing water is dangerous. Landowners are also advised to make sure dams, culverts, and catch basins are free from debris and functioning properly, if the work can be done safely.

This Watershed Conditions Statement – Water Safety Statement will remain in effect until noon, Sunday, April 14, 2024. LPRCA staff will continue to monitor forecasted conditions and will update this message as necessary.

Contact David Proracki, Water Resources Analyst at or 519-842-4242 ext. 264 should further information be required.
