March 27, 2014: Kettle Creek Conservation Authority is issuing a Watershed Conditions Statement - Flood Outlook for residents of the Kettle Creek watershed. The main concerns at this time are rising creek levels and fast flowing water.

"The recent slow rise in temperatures helped to melt a lot of the remaining snowpack. However, there is still snow cover in some areas of the watershed that combined with the forecasted rain could cause flooding in low lying areas due to rising water levels in creeks and streams," says Jennifer Dow water conservation supervisor for Kettle Creek Conservation Authority. "Although the majority of the ice in the creek in Port Stanley has made its way out to the lake, the harbour itself is still frozen. Debris and ice moving downstream could still cause an ice jam under the right conditions. However, a significant ice jam at this time is not expected."

Approximately 20-35 mm of rain is expected in the next 24 hours and temperatures are expected to remain above freezing during the day into the weekend. Residents are asked to watch local conditions closely and take appropriate action.

The public is encouraged to exercise caution near ditches, streams, creeks and reservoirs as the combination of slippery banks and fast flowing water is very dangerous. Parents in particular are urged to keep their children away from waterways and flood prone areas during times of high flow.

KCCA will be closely monitoring local conditions for the remainder of the week and into the weekend and will provide any updates warranted.
