Kawartha Conservation Cancels Flood Watch

The Flood Watch  is cancelled for the Kawartha Conservation watershed jurisdiction. A Watershed Conditions Statement – Water Safety is now in effect.

High water levels in watercourses throughout the Kawartha Conservation watershed, caused by warm air temperatures and precipitation in the past week are slowly declining. No imminent risk of flooding exists at this time.

While flooding is not expected, local watercourses are still dangerous. Flows and stream velocities are elevated; ice cover where it still exists is weak and unstable. Kawartha Conservation is warning all residents to stay a safe distance from all water bodies, as well as water structures such as bridges, culverts, and dams. Shorelines and banks are slippery and may be undercut. Children should be warned of dangerous conditions and caregivers should maintain a close watch on children who are outside.

This Watershed Condition Statement – Water Safety will be in effect through Wednesday, March 21st, 2019.

Kawartha Conservation will continue monitoring local watercourses and notify the public and municipalities within its watershed jurisdiction of any changes. We are in close communication with partner agencies such as the Trent Severn Waterway, Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, and neighbouring Conservation Authorities as to the current situation.

If you are aware of or have concerns about flooding, please contact Kawartha Conservation at 705-328-2271 or 705-344-0155 after hours.

Cavendish Rink Receives Ontario Trillium Foundation Grant

Media Release

Municipality of Trent Lakes Awarded Grant to bring back the Cavendish Rink!

March 1, 2019 – Recently, the Municipality of Trent Lakes learned that it has received an $80,900 Capital grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) to make needed upgrades to the Cavendish Recreation Centre’s outdoor community rink.

“Community rinks are the hub of rural Ontario. I am excited for the Municipality of Trent Lakes to enjoy the outdoor rink next winter,” said David Smith, MPP for Peterborough-Kawartha.

The grant will be used to help with costs involved with construction costs and adding boards, nets and equipment. The Municipality will be working to have the project completed by the fall of 2019, just in time for people of all ages in the community to lace up their skates.

“We are extremely pleased that this project has been provided with this funding and we appreciate the Ontario government recognizing the needs in rural communities,” said Mayor Clarkson.

The Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) is an agency of the Government of Ontario, and one of Canada’s leading granting foundations. OTF awarded more than $120 million to some 700 projects last year to build healthy and vibrant communities in Ontario. For more information, please visit: www.otf.ca

Kawartha Conservation Issues Flood Watch

A FLOOD WATCH is now in effect for the Kawartha Conservation watershed jurisdiction.

A series of rain showers and thunderstorms have passed through southern Ontario, including the Kawartha Conservation watershed, over the last 24 hours. Rain gauges across the watershed have recorded 5 to 15 mm of precipitation. Air temperature has reached as high 10°C, creating favourable conditions for snowmelt.

Flood Watch Notice: March 15

Precipitation, combined with snowmelt and frozen ground conditions are resulting in significant runoff. Water levels in local rivers and streams are currently rapidly increasing or peaking and exceeding their bankfull conditions in multiple locations. Smaller steams are responding faster, while it takes longer for larger watercourses to react.

In these watershed conditions all local watercourses run very high and fast. Flooding in low lying areas, areas adjacent to streams and road ditches has been observed. Surface water roads flooding may occur. Ponding of water on urban surfaces may occur as storm sewer systems can become overwhelmed by high runoff or clogged with snow, ice and
debris. Rapid deterioration of the ice cover on local rivers and streams has been observed.

As precipitation moves out of the region later today and air temperature returning back to below freezing mark, it is expected that water levels will stabilize and start declining.

Under these watershed conditions all local watercourses should be considered extremely dangerous. Kawartha Conservation is warning all residents to stay away from all water bodies, as well as water structures such as bridges, culverts, and dams. Riverbanks are slippery and unsafe; ice cover where it exists is unstable and hazardous. Children
should be warned of dangerous conditions and caregivers should maintain a close watch on children who are outside.

Municipalities are advised to monitor areas known for flooding and be prepared to respond to high water situations as they occur. As local municipalities are first to respond to and assist with flood emergencies, residents are advised to contact their municipalities should a flood threat develop.

Trent-Severn Waterway officials are closely watching this current situation and will be adjusting dam settings throughout the system when the situation warrants. Staff from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry are monitoring water levels of the Burnt and Gull rivers.
Burnt and Gull River levels are monitored by staff from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF).

Residents along these two rivers are requested to direct any questions concerning water levels to the MNRF Minden office at 705-286-5207, or refer to the City of Kawartha Lakes website for additional information: www.kawarthalakes.ca/flood.

For assistance in the event of a flood, and sandbag requests, please call your municipality.

This Flood Warning will be in effect until Monday, March 19th, 2019. Kawartha Conservation will continue monitoring water levels and watershed conditions and notify the public and municipalities within its watershed jurisdiction of any changes.

If you are aware of or have concerns about flooding, please contact Kawartha Conservation at 705-328-2271 or 705-344-0155 after hours.

Watershed Conditions Statement Advisory

Both Otonabee Conservation and Kawartha Conservation have issued Watershed Conditions statements for our region.

The Watershed Conditions Statements are in response to hazardous conditions that pose a serious personal safety risk, such as expected high than normal water flows in area rivers and streams, and possible slippery and unstable banks.

Warmer weather accompanied by rainfall is expected to begin to move through the watershed on Wednesday, March 13th through Friday, March 15th.  This weather system is expected to bring temperatures well above seasonal values with daytime highs climbing upwards of +10 degrees by Thursday afternoon.  Above zero temperatures are forecast for overnight Thursday and daytime highs climbing to upwards of +10 degrees on Friday.  In addition, rainfall amounts over 10mm are predicted on Thursday.

Currently, portions of the watershed have a considerable snow pack. Due to the duration of the expected thaw, a significant reduction of this snow pack will occur. The expected rainfall coupled with the amount of ice and snow in storm drainage systems will increase the potential for blockage and ice jams, especially in the vicinity of culverts and bridges. This may result in localized flooding in some areas.

Under expected watershed conditions, all local rivers, streams, and lakes should be considered extremely dangerous. The combination of rain, snowmelt and frozen ground conditions will combine to create other hazards such as slippery and unstable banks, unsafe ice, and extremely cold, open water conditions.

No overland flooding is expected. Municipalities and residents can expect localized urban flooding including, ditches and catch basins that will not drain due to blockages, and low-lying areas where rain and snowmelt accumulate.

Area residents to keep away from all watercourses, as well as dams, culverts, bridges and other water conveyance structures, and to observe extreme caution anywhere water can be seen to be accumulating or ponding. Children should be warned of dangerous conditions and caregivers should maintain a close watch on children who are outside.

Reminder: Tag Your Dog Sale

Until March 31st dog tags are $25 each. After March 31st, dog tags will be $30.

Trent Lakes 2019 Dog Tags are available at all Waste Transfer Sites and also at the Municipal office, 760 County Road 36, during normal hours of operation.

Even if your dog is micro chipped, your dog is required to be tagged. Currently the Municipality of Trent Lakes does not have a micro chip reader. The quickest way to be notified if your dog has been found could be by the tag secured on it’s collar.

All dogs in the Municipality of Trent Lakes must be tagged. For resident dogs, they should have a current Trent Lakes license tag firmly fixed to their collar. For non-resident dog’s, your dogs should display a current tag from the area of your primary residence.
