BRANT COUNTY — Grand River Conservation Authority issued a flood warning for several areas in the Grand River tract Tuesday.

Mild temperatures Monday and Tuesday “triggered a gradual melting of the snow pack resulting in runoff into local waterways,” said the GRCA in a statement.

Elevated water combined with ice jams has left a risk of flooding for the City of Cambridge, Nith River – New Hamburg and Ayr, Brantford and from Caledonia to Cayuga.

“Potential for ice jams and flooding is possible in low lying areas that are typically prone to flooding,” said the warning.

The GRCA also, as a result of the melt, suspended ice fishing at Belwood Lake reservoir until further notice.

GRCA warns the public to be safe when flooding risk is elevated. “The public is reminded to exercise extreme caution around all water bodies. Banks adjacent to rivers and creeks are very slippery at this time and, when combined with current weather conditions, pose a serious hazard. Parents are encouraged to keep their children and pets away from all watercourses and off frozen water bodies, which will be weakened as a result of the warming trend.”
