Flows and levels in some local waterways are dropping quickly.

That’s according to the Crowe Valley Conservation Authority, which has downgraded its flood watch to a water safety statement.  General Manager Tim Pidduck says water levels and flows have dropped as quickly as they rose. They are still going down, and are almost back to where they should be for this time of year.

Pidduck says the conservation authority is no longer concerned about flooding at this time.

But, everyone is still being urged to be cautious around any fast-moving rivers and streams. Pidduck says flows are moving quickly, and the water is still cold.

The water safety statement is in effect for parts of North Kawartha, Wollaston, Limerick, Tudor and Cashel, Faraday, and Highlands East.
