The Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) reports a flood outlook is in effect for the Credit Valley area, including Brampton.

CVC says the Surface Water Monitoring Centre of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry forecasts 20 to 40 mm of rain between April 29 and April 30, 2020.

At this time the flows and levels are in the seasonal range, but heavy rain might make for high runoff in all area watercourses. This means minor flooding may occur in low-lying areas alongside the Credit River and the river’s main tributaries.

Because of this potential flooding, streams, rivers and other areas might become treacherous, especially around culverts, bridges and dams. This means people should stay away from these dangerous areas, in particular keeping children and pets away.

The Watershed Conditions Statement for Flood Outlook is in effect through Friday, May 1 at minimum, and may be extended if necessary.

CVC says it will continue to closely monitor the water levels and general weather outlook, and if you want to get a look at CVC’s real-time monitoring you can check it out here.
