The Emergency Operation Centre recommends all sandbags be left in place even if it appears that stream and water levels are dropping. Conditions and weather can change without notice resulting in a return to high water levels and potential flooding.

Officials continue to monitor the levels and flows of area creeks, streams and lakes. Residents should use extreme caution and keep children and pets away from creek banks which can be very slippery and subject to erosion. Water levels and flows may rise unexpectedly. Boaters are asked to keep speeds down when near the shoreline to reduce potential wake erosion. As well, they should watch for floating debris flowing into area lakes due to the higher flows.

Travel is not recommended on Chute Lake Road due to washouts and deteriorating conditions.
