Watershed Conditions - Water Safety Statement

Kawartha Lakes - The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry – Bancroft District is advising area residents that a Watershed Conditions Statement - Water Safety is in effect in the District until Friday, April 03, 2020

Residents in Bancroft District should note there are increasingly high flows through water control structures to keep water levels within targets for this time of year. These flows are being managed to mitigate, as much as possible, the impacts from the expected melt and rainfall. Due to the high flows and recent warm temperatures, ice formation on lakes can be very unsafe.

The ministry is closely monitoring the weather and developing watershed conditions.
Further updates will be issued as appropriate.

The weather system that produced much of the precipitation across Ontario over the weekend is moving eastward, and out of the province. Some areas of the province will see scattered showers or flurries over the next several days. However, the five day forecast contains little to no significant precipitation.
