The Raisin Region Conservation Authority (RRCA) is issuing a Water Safety Statement for the RRCA jurisdiction.

Water levels in the local rivers and streams are currently high from the spring thaw. There is approximately 20 to 25 mm of precipitation expected over the next few days. The existing flows and expected precipitation could create unsafe conditions.

Caution should be exercised near waterbodies. Parents should inform their children of the risks and provide appropriate supervision.

This statement is in effect until Tuesday, April 6, 2021. The RRCA will continue to monitor water levels and weather forecasts as part of the Flood Forecasting and Warning program and will provide updates as conditions change.
