Lower Trent Conservation is downgrading its flood watch to a water safety statement.
LTC says water levels and flows along the Trent River, between Hastings and Trenton, have continued to decline slowly over the week, but there is a potential for them to rise again if we get heavy rain.
Despite the decline, water levels are still higher than normal and will stay that way for another week or more, so Parks Canada is continuing dam operations to control them as much as possible.
The environmental agency is still urging caution around waterways, with strong currents, cold water temperatures and slippery banks posing a safety risk.
The current water safety statement will be in effect for two weeks unless there is a drastic change in water levels or flows along the Trent River.
