Watershed Conditions Statement - Water Safety Bancroft District

Posted On Friday April 03, 2020

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry – Bancroft District is advising area residents that a Watershed Conditions Statement - Water Safety is in effect in the District until Wednesday, April 08, 2020.

Residents in Bancroft District should note there are increasingly high flows through water control structures to keep water levels within targets for this time of year. These flows are being managed to mitigate, as much as possible, the impacts from the expected melt and rainfall. Due to the high flows and recent warm temperatures, ice formation on lakes can be very unsafe.

The ministry is closely monitoring the weather and developing watershed conditions. Further updates will be issued as appropriate.
