Quinte Conservation has confirmed what many have speculated for weeks, that a flood warning on the Lake Ontario and Bay of Quinte shorelines will remain until the end of June.
Water levels on the lake remain above their highest recorded levels since 1918 and while the latest information from federal officials says those levels have stabilized, wind and waves can continue to create higher water levels in the short-term.
QC’s Water Resources Manager Christine McClure says those levels could drop up to 30 centimetres between early July and mid-August and staff will be monitoring conditions closely until then.
For now, shoreline residents are reminded again to take extra care during flooding conditions and that any work done along the shoreline may require a permit from Quinte Conservation.
