Flooding

Most flooding occurs when the volume of water in a river or stream exceeds the capacity of the channel. Flooding also takes place along lake and coastal shorelines, when higher than normal water levels overwhelm low-lying areas.

Residents who live in flood-prone areas need not be caught off guard during flood season. Although it may not always be possible to safeguard against floods, it is possible to take precautionary measures to minimize the possible health risks from floods.  This document is a resource for flooding events.  The direction provided in this document is for flood waters and its effect on our homes and environment and is not to be applied to incidents of sewage backups.

For a report on flooding in your area please contact your local conservation authority or visit Conservation Ontario.
