Mississippi River Watershed conditions returning to normal
June 12, 2015 MISSISSIPPI VALLEY WATERSHED—Water levels in most of the rivers and lakes across the Mississippi River watershed have returned to normal as a result of the rainfall received over the last two weeks. As there are still a few lakes that are below normal, residents are advised to use caution when venturing out on unfamiliar water courses.
Although conditions are returning to normal, MVCA strongly urges residents in the Mississippi River watershed to be wise in their consumption of potable water. Using rain barrels to capture any rain to water lawns and gardens and avoiding using pressure washers to clean houses, driveways, decks and fences, all contribute to the conservation of this extremely valuable resource.

Daily water levels and flows are available on the MVCA website at www.mvc.on.ca.
The Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority flood forecasting and warning program monitors weather conditions, snowpack water content, estimates expected river flows and water levels and issues flood advisories or warnings as required. MVCA provides early warning and continuous monitoring to municipal and provincial emergency response personnel through a flood event.
