2021-09-07 Water Safety Statement

River
Submitted to Just Sayin' Caledon

Credit Valley Conservation advises that Environment Canada is forecasting showers and severe thunderstorms this evening into tonight bringing localized heavy rainfall amounts in the range of 20-30mm. Higher amounts of rainfall may occur due to thunderstorms.

Flooding of the Credit River and its major tributaries are not expected. However, intense rainfall associated with thunderstorms may result in minor flooding of small headwater and urban areas. Some watersheds may respond with higher flows and water levels. As a result, local streams and rivers could become dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts, bridges and dams. Children should be warned to stay away from all watercourses.

CVC will continue to closely monitor weather and water levels in the watershed. The Watershed Conditions Statement for Water Safety will be in effect through Wednesday September 8, 2021 or until further notice.
