Flood Warning

What Does Flood Warning Mean?

Saugeen Conservation is able to obtain data from the rivers within the watershed instantaneously to forecast flows and possible flooding.

The SVCA uses a colour coded system to identify the types of flood bulletins that are issued and the severity of the flooding at any given time.

About Flood Messages

Normal Green  
Statement Yellow Watershed Conditions Statements are issued when general watershed conditions suggest high runoff potential that could lead to flooding and to remind the public that rivers, streams, and ponds may be unsafe for recreational or other activities.

Flood Watch

Orange Flood Watch messages are issued when the potential for generalized flooding exists throughout the watershed or identified for specific municipalities.


Red Flood Warning messages are issued after a forecast has been made and apply to specific flood damage centres where significant flooding is definitely possible.
