High Water Continues

The Mattagami River continues to rise in Timmins because of the recent rainfalls on Wednesday and Thursday. All the tiny streams and creeks between Gogama and Timmins are feeding into the river which is now at a dangerously high level. This is how the water was shooting through the floodgates the Ontario Power Generation dam at Wawaitin, just south of Timmins, at noon today.
The Upper Mattagami Water Management Committee continues to monitor the river and is advising boaters to stay off the water since high currents and floating debris make it more dangerous than normal.
