Flood messages and what they mean

Kawartha Conservation monitors weather information and watershed conditions, including precipitation amounts, river flows, and the snow pack, to predict when floods will occur and how high the water may rise. When flooding is possible, or about to occur, we issue flood messages to municipal emergency management officials, the media, and post messages here on our website. You can also receive flood messages by email.
