Issued on: February 22, 2018

Issued by: Grey Sauble Conservation Authority

TO: Watershed Municipalities and Watershed Media


This message is to inform you that the Flood Warning for the Grey Sauble watersheds has been lifted. A
Flood Watch remains in effect for the Sydenham River, the Beaver River, and the Sauble River.

Flows during this event were significant, exceeding well beyond average flows for this time of year. The
systems have all peaked and are on the way down. Most gauges are showing flows below average, with
the exception of those near the mouth of the Sydenham River, the Beaver River, and the Sauble River,
which are on the way down.

Hazardous conditions may exist around all waterbodies, as there is a high risk of life-threatening injury if

a person falls into the extremely cold water. The public and especially children are advised to stay away
from all waterbodies.

Localized flooding may occur in low lying areas that typically flood or are known to be impacted by ice

Grey Sauble staff will continue to monitor weather and river conditions and will provide updates as

This message will be in effect until 10:00am on Friday February 23, 2018.
