A message from the Town of Huntsville:
The Town of Huntsville is advising residents that high water levels will continue to rise at a slower rate in the downtown core, and Huntsville area for the next several days, however, areas south of the Brunel Locks will continue to experience rapid rising water levels. Localized flooding and roads closures will continue until levels decrease significantly.
- The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) informs us that their mitigation actions have reduced the possibility of water over-flowing the Brunel Locks.
- Property owners in low-lying areas including areas south of the Brunel Locks will continue to experience sustained high water levels and will need to take precautionary measures to protect their property. For tips on doing so please visit the Town of Huntsville website at Huntsville.ca
- Town of Huntsville Emergency Control Group and MNRF Officials will continue to monitor conditions and updates will be issued as required. Residents are encouraged to monitor local media outlets, the MNRF and the Town of Huntsville website for updates.
- Emergency services are prepared to assist as needed and residents are reminded to call 911 for emergency calls only
- Public works crews are continuing to repair flooded roads as water recedes
