River conditions improving

Watershed conditions upstream of Timmins continue to improve as streamflows begin to drop in response to the drier weather, it was announced by the Upper Mattagami Water Management Committee on Tuesday.
The committee says it is expected that water levels on the Mattagami River will remain the same or drop slowly in the days to come.
“However, the Flood Warning remains in place in anticipation of possible wet weather forecast for the weekend,” said spokesman Kees Pols.
As part of its community flood response plan, local officials are monitoring streamflow and weather conditions. The water management committee, the Ministry of Natural Resources, the City of Timmins and Ontario Power Generation will continue to meet on a daily basis to assess these watershed conditions. The Committee will keep the public informed of the situation through further news releases and bulletins.
