NPCA Launches Spring Flooding Awareness Campaign

The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority has launched its 2022 Spring Flooding Awareness Campaign.

Flood prediction is complex as there is a high degree of dependence on day-to-day weather forecasts and conditions, and the speed and consistency at which temperatures transition.

To assist with its prediction, the NPCA conducts snow surveys twice a month from November to May, where snow at seven snow courses across the watershed is measured and weighed. This data is collected and analyzed to develop a deeper understanding of the fluxes and behaviour of the systems and potential flooding.

The NPCA also monitors stream flow, rainfall, and other meteorological information at locations across the watershed, through a network of stations. When flooding is possible or about to occur, the NPCA will issue flood advisories to municipal emergency management officials, the media, and community at large.

For more information on how the NPCA tracks flooding throughout Niagara, as well as how you can stay informed about flood status in your community, please read the full NCPA media release.
