This is the 2nd CPRA Community Town Hall Meeting for 2017, following the previous event with MPP Han Dong as Guest Speaker on March 6th.

Hope to see you there.

TRCA – Flood Watch in effect until cancelled
Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA)
Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA) advises that up to 20 mm of the forecasted 70 mm of rain has fallen throughout the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) in the past 6 hours. The system is predicted to taper on Saturday.
Water levels within TRCA’s watercourses are rising due to the rainfall and there is the potential that water levels will exceed its riverbanks resulting in riverine flooding.
Due to high soil moisture content in the region and the forecasted rainfall amount, all rivers within the GTA will be experiencing higher flows and water levels, resulting in dangerous conditions. The water levels in many of TRCA’s watercourses are still rising and have yet to peak including the Don River. In addition, the higher lake level has reduced the channel capacity that results in a potential for flooding of roads and trails along streams and rivers including the Bayview Avenue extension and the Don Valley Parkway and low-lying areas. We are closely monitoring other transportation routes and sites adjacent to potentially impacted watercourses.
Please note – this Watershed Conditions Statement addresses river-related flood risks. Please click here for information related to Lake Ontario levels and hazards.
Please exercise extreme caution around all bodies of water and avoid driving in low-lying areas and roadways particularly at underpasses, as well as the shoreline. Please alert any children under your care of these dangerous conditions and supervise their activities. Be alert for possible transportation delays and road closures.
Toronto and Region Conservation will continue to monitor the weather and watershed conditions and will issue further messages as necessary. This Flood Watch will be in effect until cancelled. For more information please contact the on-call Flood Duty Officer.
