Watershed Conditions Statement – Water Safety

This notice is intended to update the public and local municipalities of the condition of watercourses as it relates to the Niagara Peninsula and the eastern portion of Hamilton and Haldimand County.

A low-pressure system associated with the remnants of Hurricane Gordon is tracking close to the Niagara Peninsula. At this time the Niagara Region and Haldimand County are under a Rainfall Warning as issued by Environment Canada. The forecast is calling for approximately 50mm of rain to fall, possibly heavy at times. The rain will start late this evening and should start to taper off tomorrow afternoon. The heaviest rains will fall through the overnight hours.

Water levels in local creeks and rivers are currently well below critical thresholds and the NPCA does not expect any major flooding associated with this event. However, localized flooding of low-lying areas prone to flooding is possible.

The NPCA will continue to monitor these conditions and will issue further messages as required. Information on the Flood Status in the watershed and water levels within local watercourses can be found on the NPCA’s website at:

This notice is in effect until noon Tuesday September 11th, 2018 and will be updated as required.
