Flood Watch Issued for Millhaven Creek

Published on: 2022/02/28 - in Releases

RELEASE — Cataraqui Conservation has issued a Flood Watch for Millhaven Creek due to high water levels in Odessa.

Reduced flow capacity in Millhaven Creek from ice blockage is resulting in high water levels in Odessa, particularly along Gore Street upstream (north) of Babcock Mill.

Widespread flooding is NOT expected at this time. However, localized flooding of flood-prone areas is possible. If you witness flooding and/or require assistance your first point of contact is Loyalist Township.

Affected residents can obtain sandbags and sand from Loyalist Township at 748 County Rd 6. You will need to bring your own shovel.

Cataraqui Conservation and Loyalist Township staff continue to monitor the situation  and will update statements as needed. This Flood Watch will remain in effect until (or updated before) Wednesday, March 9, 2022, at 11:59 PM.

A Water Safety Statement for the region also remains in effect.
