Currently, soils in the watershed are saturated following the spring snowmelt and yesterday’s rain. Water levels along the Credit River and its major tributaries have continued to recede gradually throughout last week, however remain higher than normal.

 

Flooding in low-lying areas along the Credit River and its major tributaries may occur if the upper limits of the forecasted precipitation are realized. As a result, local streams and rivers could become dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts, bridges and dams. People should be warned to stay away from all watercourses, especially children and pets.

 

 

CVC will continue to closely monitor weather and water levels in the watershed. The Watershed Conditions Statement for Flood Outlook will be in effect through Monday April 1st, or until further notice.
