Flood Outlook – South Nation Conservation

Finch – South Nation Conservation (SNC) cautions residents that water levels are expected to rise this week due to heavy rainfall.

Environment and Climate Change Canada is forecasting approximately 30-60 mm rain for this week. The forecasted weather will cause fast runoff to watercourses, which will increase river levels and flows throughout the South Nation watershed.

Severe flooding is not a concern at this time; however, nuisance flooding in low-lying areas may be observed. Furthermore, potential for blocked storm drains, catch basins and culverts are very high which may also cause localized flooding.

Residents are advised to stay away from rivers as the forecasted weather may rapidly increase river flows and banks might be unstable and slippery. Parents are encouraged to explain these dangers to their children.

Staff will continue to monitor the water levels and weather forecasts as part of the Flood Forecasting and Warning Program and will provide updates in the event conditions change.

The public is encouraged to visit and to also provide feedback with respect to changes in water related conditions in their local areas. All feedback can be sent to, posted on our Facebook (/SouthNationConservation), or Tweet us your photos (@SouthNationCA).

For more information, please contact Golam Sharif at 1-877-984-2948 ext. 373 or Jason Symington at 1-877-984-2948 ext. 230.

This statement is in effect until Monday, May 8, 2017.
