Despite significant isolated storms in recent weeks, South Nation Conservation (SNC) is advising residents that the watershed will continue to remain in Level 1 Low Water Conditions under the Ontario Low Water Response Program.

The localized storm events that occurred have helped conditions temporarily, however stream gauges within SNC’s jurisdiction showed minor increases in flows before going back down again, below normal. The long forecast indicates that the remainder of August and September will be warmer and drier than normal. Alleviating the low water conditions would require regular rainfall over the next weeks and months.
