Watershed Conditions Statement: Flood Outlook

Posted on May 3, 2017

The Essex Region Conservation Authority advises that, although current conditions provide for an element of drying time, the current saturated state of the region allows for standing water and or flooding to occur anywhere within the region with even light amounts of rainfall.

Property owners are advised to inspect their properties today and ensure that all drainage outlets are functioning and not blocked or encumbered by debris or other materials.

Current forecasts have identified the potential for heavy regional rainfall over the next two days. Forecasts will be monitored throughout the day and this advisory will be updated and or amended as required by 4:00 PM (1600 hrs)
