Spring Flooding in the Nottawasaga Valley

Flood Workshop in Mono Centre, March 6 at 6:30

Stay safely back from area streams and rivers!

With the spring-like weather arriving early this year, already we have seen localized flooding and ice jams in our watershed. 

One of NVCA's main roles is to issue flood messages. We forecast flooding risk by actively tracking the snowpack, weather, water levels and other information to identify the potential for dangerous high water and flood conditions. 

To find out if a flood message has been issued:

  • Watch for updates on local television, radio and newspapers.
  • Check NVCA's website or follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
  • Call the flood information line at 705-424-1479 and select option 1.
  • Contact your local municipality.

Don’t forget that during this time of year, conditions in streams and rivers can change quickly. Cold, fast-flowing water poses a very real threat if you, your children or your pets fall in.  Play it safe and stay well back from waterways as the snow and ice melts.
