Sauble River Watershed Flood Watch

Grey Sauble | by Claire McCormack  

Conservation officials say the Sauble River watershed could reach flood levels.

The Grey Sauble Conservation Authority is warning about above average flows in the Sauble River Watershed.

Conservation officials say the significant snow melt and the rain late last night has caused river flows to increase.

They say some, like the Beaver River have already peaked and are starting to come down.  

But the Sauble River system has areas such as Allenford which are already above average flows and may continue to rise.

For this reason, Grey Sauble is issuing a Flood Watch specifically for the Sauble River System.

"Flood Watch" indicates there is a potential for unusual flooding and people should keep an eye on waterway conditions and be prepared in the event that flooding occurs.

Conservation officials also warn high flows, unsafe banks, melting ice or other factors could be dangerous for recreational users such as anglers, canoeists, hikers, children, pets, etc.
