Water Conditions for the Parry Sound/ Muskoka District Areas
Spring flooding is a natural event that occurs periodically and is caused by an extraordinary
amount of runoff into a river system due to a rapid melt of the snow pack and/or any significant amount
of rainfall. If our analysis of the watershed and weather conditions indicates there is a possibility of high
water or flood conditions, MNRF will issue appropriate notifications such as a Flood Watch or Flood
Warning. At this time of year, MNRF urges all residents to take precautionary steps to protect or secure
any property in low lying flood prone areas.
