The Grand River Conservation Authority is warning about the potential for flooding in Ayr and New Hamburg.
AYR - The Grand River Conservation Authority has issued a flood watch for Nith River.
Higher water levels are moving down the Nith River after the rain from last night and this morning. Couple that with the snow melting and the water levels are very high right now. They are expected to peak near warning level 1 in New Hamburg and Ayr.
Flood co-coordinators in New Hamburg and Ayr should prepare to warn residents if the conditions change according to the GRCA.
Moving ice also creates the potential for ice jams at vulnerable points in the river system that could cause ice jam flooding. Conditions will be monitored closely and we will provide you with any updates as they occur.
