Flood Forecasting and Warning in the RRCA

The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) is responsible for flood related emergencies.

Flood forecasting and warning has been delegated to Conservation Authorities.
If a local emergency is declared, MNRF will work directly with the municipality and in consultation with the Conservation Authority.

The Raisin Region Conservation Authority monitors water levels throughout Cornwall; South Glengarry; and large portions of North Glengarry and South Stormont.
