Flood Watch Cancelled for Lake Ontario/Bay of Quinte - September 29, 2017

Lower Trent Conservation is cancelling the Flood Watch for the Lake Ontario shoreline from Grafton to Quinte West and the Bay of Quinte shoreline within Quinte West.

A Flood Outlook Statement was first issued on April 27, 2017 and a Flood Warning was in effect for May through August. Water levels as recorded at Cobourg have now dropped approximately 92 cm from the record setting daily average of 75.88 masl (metres above sea level) set at the end of May.

The International Lake Ontario - St. Lawrence River Board has indicated that the hot and dry weather through much of September combined with declining inflows from Lake Erie will allow Lake Ontario water levels to continue a rapid decline over the next several weeks. Lake Ontario typically reaches its seasonal low level in late fall. Additional information can be obtained from the Board's website.

As water levels remain 28 cm above average for this time of year, the public are reminded to be aware of shoreline hazards. Saturated and eroded shorelines may be unstable after the recent and unprecedented high lake levels. Shorelines should be avoided particularly during periods of strong onshore winds.

Property owners are reminded that any restoration or repair work along the shoreline (e.g., placement of fill, armour stone, etc.) will require a permit from Lower Trent Conservation. Call the office at 613-394-4829 or visit the website for more information.

Lower Trent Conservation monitors water levels and weather forecasts closely as part of its flood forecasting and warning program. Water level updates are available at www.ltc.on.ca. If you have concerns about water levels, please contact Lower Trent Conservation at (613) 394-4829.
