Trent Hills Residents Advised to Prepare for High Water

Posted On Thursday April 25, 2019

The Flood Warning issued for the Trent Hills area by the Lower Trent Conservation Authority remains in place.  The Municipality is monitoring the situation on a regular basis and will respond as needed to current conditions. 

At this time, residents who live in low lying areas are encouraged to take precautions to protect their property, as the weather forecast and water management predictions are anticipating water levels similar to levels reached in 2014.

The Municipality is advising those residents in areas prone to water accumulation to have sufficient and appropriate emergency supplies on hand, make personal arrangements for alternative accommodations should the need arise, move personal property to higher ground, and check sump pumps to ensure that they are working properly.  Owners are responsible for any equipment required to protect their property (generators, pumps, etc.).
