Rain will lead to rising water levels, fast-moving water: Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority

The expected rainfall over the next two days has dropped from 75 mm to an anticipated 40 mm, but that’s still enough for the Cataraqui Conservation Authority to issue a water safety statement.

The CRCA’s education supervisor Krista Fazackerley says water levels will rise in the lakes, streams and rivers they are responsible for managing.

“It’s just to make sure that you’re aware and staying away from those hazards, so around the dams, the in flow, out flow, there’s going to be a lot of water.”

With the rain, banks will be slippery and the water is still very cold in April, Fazackerley says.
