The municipality of the Village of North Hatley is pleased to continue to inform its citizens and the citizens of neighbouring municipalities of the spring flood situation since its last bulletin.

Over the course of the past week, the lake and river levels, as well as the river flow have been on a continuous decline.  This morning, due to the precipitation that has been hitting the region since yesterday, these levels and river flow have begun to increase.  The weather forecast indicates that precipitation will end this evening.  However, the corresponding effects from the water runoff will only be seen later, over the course of the following 24 to 48 hours.  For the moment, the situation remains at a state of « normal ».

Constant surveillance will be maintained by the municipal direction in order to remain up to date on information given by the regional direction of civil security and by the Centre d’expertise hydrique du Québec.  The municipal public works department will also continue to monitor the situation.

The municipality will continue to update the Flood-Info section on its web site at www.northhatley.org and will also use its Infolettre, if necessary, in order to keep everyone up to date.

Your attention to these announcements is appreciated.
