Water watch

publisher Feb 21, 2018 - 1:48pm

The Raisin Region Conservation Authority is advising caution near local rivers and creeks. The recent precipitation and unseasonably warm temperatures are resulting in rapid snowmelt and ice breakup. Water levels are currently rising and water is moving quickly. Since water is currently contained within the river banks, for the most part, wide-scale flooding is not expected at this time.
