Flood warning downgraded to an advisory for Coe Hill area


The Crowe Valley Conservation Authority is downgrading the FLOOD WARNING issued by the CVCA April 4 to a FLOOD ADVISORY as of 7:00 am 13 April 2009.

All people living in low-lying flood prone areas throughout the Crowe River watershed are still advised to remain vigilant and take the appropriate precautions as flood waters remain high.

The CVCA General Manager, Tim Pidduck states that “the snowpack is virtually eliminated in the upper portion of the Crowe River watershed and with no additional precipitation since last week, the levels and flows in the Crowe River watershed have peaked and are beginning to steadily recede.”

Although levels and flows are receding, the CVCA continues to urge everyone to stay away from all dams, hydro generating plants, water control structures, shorelines of lakes and rivers and streams.

CVCA staff will continue to monitor the situation closely. This FLOOD ADVISORY will remain in effect until further notice.

If there are any questions or concerns CVCA staff can be reached at 613-472-3137. The CVCA includes portions of the municipalities of Trent Hills, Stirling-Rawdon, Marmora and Lake, Havelock-Belmont-Methuen, North Kawartha, Wollaston, Limerick, Tudor and Cashel, Faraday and Highlands East.
