Water Resources Manager Christine McClure says she expects that water flows and levels will remain high for the next week and have the potential to get worse.
McClure adds that depending on the temperature there will be either rain or snow and that would mean that water levels could peak again.
Quinte Conservation staff will be monitoring conditions closely and will update the flood message before next week if the forecasts change significantly or become more severe.
As a result of the rain received last week levels in the Moira River system have peaked. Upper tributaries to the Moira River peaked over the weekend. Stoco Lake peaked on Sunday and the Moira River in Foxboro peaked on Monday. Levels and flows were close to a one in two year flood. There is a fifty per cent chance in any given year that spring runoff will reach those levels.
Lakes in the upper region of the Salmon River, such as Kennebec Lake and Big Clear Lake, have peaked. Beaver Lake and the Salmon River near Tamworth are slowly approaching their peak.
Levels in the Napanee River will remain high for an extended period of time.
