News Mar 27, 2016 Burlington Post

Conservation Halton has issued a Watershed Conditions Statement advising that Environment Canada is forecasting rain beginning Sunday evening and ending by Monday afternoon, with expected amounts ranging from 25 mm to 50 mm.

This precipitation, in conjunction with saturated ground conditions, will result in higher than normal water levels and flows in local streams.

No flooding is anticipated at this time, however Conservation Halton is asking all residents and children to stay away from watercourses and structures such as bridges, culverts and dams. Elevated water levels, fast flowing water, and slippery conditions along stream banks make these locations extremely dangerous. Please alert children in your care of these imminent dangers.

Conservation Halton will continue to monitor stream flow and weather conditions and will issue further messages as necessary.

The Watershed Conditions Statement will be in effect until Tuesday, March 29.
