NOTICE - Flood Warning Still in Effect

Updated: May 19 17
 Created: Apr 13 17

The flood warning has been extended to May 26th. Water levels are decreasing however high water is still contributing to flooding along the Madawaska River. Going into the long weekend, all residents and visitors should be aware that there is an increased risk to public safety because of high water. There are strong currents and hidden dangers under the water especially for people not familiar with the area. Additionally, bacteria and contamination in the water in flooded areas could cause an increased health risk to swimmers. Residents and visitors are being asked to avoid recreational boating on flooded waters as the increased wave action could contribute to shoreline erosion.

Road Closures due to floodingTag Alder Lane, Cedar Grove Road from civic address 1059 and Schroder Road, effective May 6th.

Re-opened Roads: Homestead Rd has Re-opened as of May 19,2017. 

Sand Bags: Sand bags need to be disposed of properly as they could be contaminated. They should not be used on beaches, gardens, or sand boxes. Residents should wear gloves when handling and moving sand bags. The township is arranging to have sand bags picked up from the affected properties next week. We are asking that you move the sand bags to a location that is convenient for pick up, such as the end of your drive way.

Water: We have clean drinking water available at the township for any residents that are in need. Please bring your own containers for filling.

Flood Clean Up: Tipping fees will be waived on flood/water damaged household items and materials taken to the Brudenell Waste Site during regular waste site hours on May 20th and May 24th.
