The forecasted conditions will lead to watercourses rising throughout the LPRCA with the potential to flood low lying areas.
People are warned to stay away from ditches, water bodies, streams, rivers, and ponds as the combination of slippery banks and cold, fast-flowing water is dangerous.
Parents are reminded to keep children and pets away from all of these areas.
Landowners are also advised to make sure dams, culverts, and catchbasins are free from debris and functioning properly prior to the event, if safe to do so.
The Watershed Conditions Statement – Flood Outlook is in effect until 5 PM, Monday, April 16, 2018.
