There’s still little relief for many areas reeling from this week’s heavy rainfall and high water levels.
The Grand River Conservation Authority says a flood warning remains in effect for the southern Grand River watershed and Eramosa River.
Small ice jams are in place along the Eramosa River, and river flows remain extremely elevated.
As a result, a flood warning is still in place for Cambridge, Puslinch, Wellington County, Woolwich, Brantford, Six Nations, Haldimand County, and Dunnville.
A flood watch remains in effect for Wilmot, New Hamburg, Grand Valley, Mapleton, Blandford-Blenheim, Brant County, Ayr and all of North Dumfries.
Though most of the ice is gone, river flows will remain high throughout the next week. Continue to use extreme caution around the water’s edge as banks can be slippery and dangerous. #cbridge #staysafe pic.twitter.com/3c8OLMimfW

Water levels in the Grand River and the Nith River within @northdumfries continue to recede. However, levels are still high and water in the rivers are fast moving. Please stay back from all water bodies as the banks have been weakened and are slippery.

The flooding has also resulted in a number of road closures.
Three Bridges Road in Woolwich
Oxford-Waterloo Road between the Nith River and Tye Road in Wilmot
Pipers Glen Park on Nith River Way is CLOSED. The water levels are high in the park. Please talk to your children about staying away from the park as it is not safe. pic.twitter.com/KiV8Ao23wV
