Flood Warning

Flood Warning for Lake Nipissing Shoreline in North Bay, Callander, and Parks Creek Watershed. Watershed Conditions Statement – Flood Outlook elsewhere in NBMCA watershed (North Bay April 19, 2023).

A Flood Warning has been issued for the Lake Nipissing shoreline in the City of North Bay and Municipality of Callander and the Parks Creek watershed and a Watershed Conditions Statement – Flood Outlook continues for the other areas of the North Bay-Mattawa watershed, according to the North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority (NBMCA).

“Water levels and flows have increased significantly in response to last week’s rain event,” stated Angela Mills, NBMCA Flood Duty Officer. “Water levels on Lake Nipissing have been rising and strong westerly winds will enhance local water levels and risk of shoreline erosion,” she added. “NBMCA has initiated operations of the Parks Creek Backflood Control structure, located at Eva Wardlaw Conservation Area in North Bay,” says Chitra Gowda, NBMCA Flood Warning Coordinator.
