Water Level Bulletin
Flood Watch Update
- April 21, 2017
Lower Trent Conservation advises municipalities and the public that the Flood Watch issued on Friday, April 7, 2017 remains in effect for the Trent River from Hastings to Trenton. There continues to be minor flooding occurring of some access roads, backyards and basements in low lying areas along the river.
Water levels and flows in the upstream areas of the Trent River watershed have peaked this week. This includes the Burnt and Gull Rivers as well as the Kawartha Lakes. As a result, the Trent-Severn Waterway will be making operational changes to water control structures along the entire river system through the weekend to further reduce the flows.
For residents living along the Trent River within the municipalities of Trent Hills and Quinte West, the springtime high water levels of this past week will start a gradual decline over the weekend. With little precipitation predicted in the long range forecast, decreasing water levels is expected to continue through next week.
Everyone is advised to exercise extreme caution around all waterways. Strong currents pose a safety hazard to anyone. Areas around water control structures should be avoided at all times.
Lower Trent Conservation monitors water levels and weather forecasts as part of its flood forecasting and warning program. Daily water level information is available at www.ltc.on.ca
. If you have concerns about water levels, please contact Lower Trent Conservation at (613) 394-4829.
This Flood Watch will be updated on Monday, April 24, 2017, or earlier if conditions warrant.
