Flood Watch Remains in Effect

A flood watch remains in effect for the Upper Thames River Watershed.

A flood watch remains in effect for the Upper Thames River Watershed. 

The constant flow of wet weather has caused rivers and streams in the area to move faster and rise. According to the Upper Thames Conservation Authority the watershed was hit with 25-35 mm of rain over the past 24 hours at low intensities of 1-4 mm per hour. We were able to avoid any major flooding because of the low intensity that the rain is falling. 

We should get another 25-35 mm of rain over the next 24 hours which could result in some flooding in low lying areas.
 
Residents are reminded to use extreme caution near all watercourses, stay out of any flooded areas, and to keep children and pets away. Streambanks are slippery and the water is cold and moving quickly.
 
The UTRCA’s flood control reservoirs at Fanshawe, Wildwood and Pittock Conservation Areas are at seasonal levels, and are being operated to reduce downstream flows.
