Otonabee Conservation May 13 Notice
Flooding conditions on the Kawartha Lakes, Otonabee River and Rice Lake are forecast to end no later than this Friday, May 17th. Regardless, the combination of rain and time of year will continue to create hazardous conditions on and around area lakes, rivers, streams, creeks and wetlands including slippery and unstable banks and extremely cold water conditions. Under these circumstances, all waterbodies should be considered extremely dangerous.
All residents are warned to stay away from the shoreline areas, as well as water structures such as locks and dams. Shorelines and banks are saturated, slippery, and may be and undercut. Children should be warned of dangerous conditions and caregivers should maintain a close watch on children who are outside.
Trent-Severn Waterway continues to reassess the situation on a daily basis and adjust flow through the water control structures as conditions require.
