Flood warning in place until September

The flood warning situation on Lake Ontario and the Bay of Quinte isn’t expected to change for at least another month.

While the latest reports show water levels on the two bodies of water have dropped more than 30 centimetres since they peaked in May, the levels are still significantly higher than they should be, so the flood warning from Quinte Conservation will remain in place until September 12, at least.

Shoreline residents, who have experienced damage or erosion from high water levels are reminded again, that a permit needs to be obtained from Quinte Conservation before any work can be done.

QC staff are available to visit those affected properties and guide owners through that process.

The environmental agency will continue to monitor the water level conditions and provide updates as things change.
