Flood Warning
A flood event may be defined as a sudden increase in watercourse levels resulting from the occurrence of precipitation, snowmelt, or a combination of the two. The severity of flood events can range from minor increases in creek levels (resulting in “hazardous creek conditions”), to extreme flood conditions (posing a risk to life and property). These various types of events, and the corresponding flood response activities, are described in the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority’s Flood Contingency Plan.
