The flood warning stretching along the shorelines of Lake Ontario and the Bay of Quinte will remain in effect until the beginning of August.
On Wednesday, Quinte Conservation issued a statement indicating water levels have been gradually decreasing since they peaked at the end of May.
However, General Manager Terry Murphy explained due to accumulated rainfall this week, water levels on the lake and bay increased by four centimetres on Tuesday.
He added the public needs to be aware these conditions will remain until the area receives a consistent dry spell.
Murphy also stated people who have put a lot of sandbags along their property need to be aware they can’t dump the sand into the water and it has to be disposed of properly.
Quinte Conservation will continue to monitor the situation and the flood warning will be in effect or updated on or before August 3.
