Melting snow, due to above average temperatures, and the recent heavy rainfalls have combined to produce dangerously high water levels in rivers, creeks and streams throughout our district. The Lower Thames Valley and St. Clair Region conservation authorities have issued flood warnings for watercourses across their watersheds.
Slippery banks along rivers, creeks and ditches, fast moving water and unstable ice can be dangerous. Even standing water may pose hazards. Both conservation authorities have produced educational resources, which include important safety information for children. We have reviewed these safety tips with our students in class. It is also important that parents talk to their children about being safe while playing outdoors during the spring melt.
If you have any questions, please contact the Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority or the St. Clair Region Conservation Authority directly. I wish to thank them for these valuable education resources, which will help to keep our children safe.
