Heavy rain prompts GRCA, LPRCA advisories

Area conservation authorities have issued advisories following heavy rainfall yesterday.

The Long Point Region Conservation Authority says with watercourse levels expected to remain elevated for several days, a water safety statement will remain in effect until noon Friday.

The LPRCA urges people to stay away from all watercourses as the combination of slippery banks, and cold, fast-flowing water can be dangerous.

Landowners are also advised to ensure dams, culverts and catch basins are free from debris and working properly.

The Grand River Conservation Authority says while no significant flooding is anticipated , saturated ground conditions will result in higher flows on local waterways and increase the risk of flooding in low-lying areas typically prone to spring flooding.

The low-level bridge on Three Bridges Road in St. Jacobs was expected to close on Sunday afternoon due to the increased river flows.  (@grandriverca)
