Warm Conditions and Rain Could Lead to Early Spring Flooding Conditions

Regional | by Cody Misner  

According to both authorities, snow pack throughout the watersheds has diminished greatly due to warm temperatures.


Both the Grey Sauble Conservation Authority and the Saugeen River Conservation Authority are advising Grey Bruce Residents that warm temperatures, melting snow and forecasted rain could cause waterways to experience spring flooding conditions over the next few days.  

According to both authorities, snow pack throughout the watersheds has diminished greatly due to warm temperatures.

This has caused the soil to become saturated with a concern that forecasted rain will lead to run off and could flood low lying areas.  

The conservation authorities have said that any potential flooding would not exceed usual spring flooding conditions.  

They have advised residents and municipal staff to ensure culverts are clear and to stay clear of waterway embankments.
