The Review

From North Grey Sauble Conservation Authority

From North Grey Sauble Conservation Authority

Environment Canada has issued Rain Fall Warnings for our region including Grey Sauble watersheds. Across our watersheds we have received between 20 and 40 mm of rain. The forecast is calling for an additional 25 mm into this evening.

With the ground saturated and snow continuing to melt, water levels are anticipated to rise with the additional rain. Flows are currently below our average spring runoff conditions. However, localized flooding may occur in low lying areas that typically flood or are known to be impacted by ice jamming.

Flow conditions can change based on the timing, duration and intensity of the rain. Grey Sauble staff will continue to monitor weather and river conditions and will provide updates as needed. A close watch on local forecasts and conditions is recommended.

Due to the elevated flows, residents are advised to use caution near all watercourses and waterbodies.

This message will be in effect until Wednesday evening (February 21, 2018)

Grey Sauble Conservation, like other Conservation Authorities across the Province, maintains a flood forecasting and warning system. The purpose of the system is to minimize flood damage, and loss of life by providing residents of flood prone areas with advance warning of possible flood events.

Most flooding in the watershed results from spring runoff compounded by ice jams. The frequency of ice jams in many locations is usually predictable. The severity of the jams and the extent of flooding are often difficult to predict.

Within the watershed there are many identified flood prone areas. These include Tara and Allenford on the Sauble River, Meaford on the Bighead River, Clarksburg, Kimberley and Heathcote on the Beaver River.
