  Low lying areas watch for flooding

  • Rideau Valley Conservation Authority is warning that warm temperatures and rain could cause water levels to threaten access to lower lying communities along the Rideau River. The RVCA particularly warned about Hilly Lane, Cedar Beach and Rideau Glen and other small communities along the Long Reach of the Rideau River near Kemptville that are susceptible to flooding. The Hilly Lane community could start to have water encroaching on the access road as a result of above zero temperatures melting the remaining snow and a heavy two-day rainfall.

    As in previous statements, an important element is public safety. The fluctuating water levels and temperatures will cause ice to weaken on all watercourses. Parents are urged to remind their children about the dangers of playing on or near ice covered surfaces or fast flowing water in ditches and smaller creeks. All watershed residents are advised to stay off of the ice on rivers and streams and avoid icy or wet streambanks where footing can be treacherous.

    Conservation Authority staff will continue to monitor conditions and issue further statements as conditions warrant. These conditions are similar in other local watersheds as well, including the Mississippi, South Nation and Raisin river basins.
