Due to heavy rains and increased flows, the Crowe Valley Conservation Authority is warning people to be careful around the water.
While they do not anticipate flooding at this time, they are calling on the public to stay away from all water control buildings like hydro dams. They are also warning pet owners and parents to make sure their kids and pets avoid rivers, streams and creeks in the watershed at this time. They also warn that water flowing through culverts can also be extremely dangerous.
With conditions as they are, the Authority also reminds the public that beaver dams can fail during this time, causing washouts in the area. They are asking residents to be alert while driving.
The Crowe Valley Conservation Authority monitors water levels south of Bancroft. Their area includes the townships of Faraday, Limerick, Wollaston, Tudor and Cashel, Highlands East and North Kawartha.
