EASTERN ONTARIO — Local conservation authorities responsible for both the South Nation and Raisin river watersheds lifted low-water advisories this month.
Consistent rainfall allowed the “water response teams” at South Nation Conservation and the Raisin Region Conservation Authority to recognize the end of so-called level 1 low water status in their areas of jurisdiction. SNC did so in the first week of August, while its counterpart followed suit on Aug. 13.
Both organizations — which constantly monitor stream flows and precipitation — imposed the advisory in early June, following dry conditions over the spring. They monitor stream flow and precipitation to make their determinations.
