Flood watch for Lake Nipissing continues

Monday, April 29, 2013   by: Kate AdamsMNR News Release

*********************

The North Bay District of the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) is reminding area residents that Lake Nipissing remains under a flood watch.



Lake Nipissing rose three centimetres this past weekend and is approximately five centimetres above its summer operating range. This may result in ice damage, specifically to properties along the shoreline.



Rain is expected throughout the week which could affect lake levels and the rate of snowmelt.



MNR reminds area residents to take action to protect infrastructure along shorelines and in flood-prone areas and to exercise caution around water bodies and any low-lying areas.



This flood watch will be updated as conditions warrant.



Separate flood warnings have been issued for:
•Sturgeon River Watershed
•French River (below the Public Works and Government Services Canada Dams)



A watershed condition statement has been issued for:
•South River Watershed
