FLOOD WATCH Credit Valley Conservation 1255 Old Derry Road, Mississauga, ON, L5N 6R4 Telephone: (905) 670-1615 Fax: (905) 670-2210 Issued to: Municipalities, Police, Emergency Services, School Boards, Media, Local Conservation Authorities, CVC Staff and Board Members Date: February 15, 2016 Time: 4:00 P.M. Environment Canada is forecasting that a cold front will cross through the Credit River watershed this afternoon and into the evening. The weather front will create favourable conditions for the development of localized severe thunderstorms and heavy downpours capable of producing amounts of up to 50mm in a single hour. With watercourses already at higher than normal levels, local streams and rivers can be expected to rise as a result of the forecasted additional rainfall, resulting in flash flooding, especially in urbanized watersheds. Watercourses will continue to be dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts, bridges and dams. Children should be warned to stay away from all watercourses and fast flowing water. CVC will continue to closely monitor weather and water levels in the watershed. The previously issued Flood Outlook Statement has now been upgraded to a Flood Watch and will be in effect through to Thursday July 11, 2013 or until further notice. For more information on this Flood Watch Statement, please contact the CVC during office ours at 905- 670-1615. In the event of an afterhours flood emergency please call 1-800-215-8505. Amanda Cousins Flood Duty Officer NOTE: A Watershed Condition Statement for Flood Outlook is issued as an early notice of the potential for flooding based on weather forecast of heavy rain, snow melt, high wind or other conditions that could lead to high runoff, ice jams, shoreline flooding or erosion.
