Flood Watch cancelled for shoreline areas in Kawartha Lakes

KAWARTHA LAKES-A Flood Watch for the shoreline areas of Balsam, Cameron, Sturgeon and Pigeon lakes is cancelled effective immediately. Watershed conditions status has return to normal according to Kawartha Conservation.

Water levels in all Kawartha Lakes within the Kawartha Conservation watershed have continued declining over the last week. All lakes are currently at or slightly above their full navigation levels.
The Trent Severn Waterway officials are monitoring water levels and continue to adjust dams in order to prepare the system for public navigation.
Kawartha Conservation is warning all residents to always be safe around water bodies,
as well as water structures such as bridges, culverts, and dams. Children should be warned of dangerous conditions and caregivers should maintain a close watch on children who are outside.
Kawartha Conservation will continue monitoring water levels and watershed conditions and notify the public and municipalities within its watershed jurisdiction of any changes.
