This statement is an update to the Flood Outlook statement issued by the Raisin Region Conservation Authority (RRCA) on October 31, 2019.
Water levels within the RRCA’s jurisdiction are returning to normal.
Precipitation amounts in excess of 50 mm were reported late last week. Water levels were already high following precipitation earlier in the month. As a result, water levels rose to near spring-like conditions and flooding was observed in low-lying areas.
Significant precipitation is not in the short-term weather forecast; water levels are expected to continue to recede.
Caution should still be exercised when near waterbodies. Parents should inform their children of the risks and provide appropriate supervision.
The RRCA will continue to monitor water levels and weather forecasts as part of the Flood Forecasting and Warning program and will provide updates if conditions change.
