Inland Lakes, Cataraqui River Watershed – Flood Warning Update
The Flood Warning continues for several lakes in the Cataraqui River Watershed. Although many lake levels remain very high, conditions continue to improve gradually as levels slowly drop. Some lakes have been removed from our flood messaging because they have dropped to high spring levels.
Locations still in Flood Warning status:
Colonel By Lake, Cranberry Lake, Devil Lake, Dog Lake, Kingsford Lake, Newboro Lake, Opinicon Lake, Sand Lake.

Water managers continue to conduct operations to minimize the effects of the high-water levels and pass flows down through the system.
