Watershed Conditions Statement Issued by Saugeen Valley Conservation Authority
Saugeen Valley Conservation Authority has released the following watershed conditions statement:
Above normal temperatures have resulted in some melting of the snowpack, and rainfall occurred over the Saugeen Watershed overnight. In response, watercourse levels have risen and river ice has shifted in most places. Much colder temperatures today will reduce runoff to area streams.
Water levels in some watercourses have peaked, while most of the others will do so later today. Significant flooding is not expected, but flooding in traditional low-lying flood plain areas is likely to occur.
For safety reasons, the public is advised to stay well away from rivers and streams. River banks can be wet and slippery.
