Quinte Conservation removes flood warning for inland lakes and streams

Quinte Conservation has removed the flood warning for its inland lakes and streams, but it remains in effect for the Bay of Quinte and Lake Ontario.

“Water levels on Lake Ontario and the Bay of Quinte will continue to rise for the several weeks,” general manager Terry Murphy said in a news release.

“We can’t predict how high the water will get.”

Murphy also says Lake Ontario typically peaks in mid-June or early July and once it does peak the water will slowly recede.

Quinte Conservation continues to advise residents to stay clear of shorelines, because the water is still cold and fast moving.
