The Town of Bracebridge says river and lake levels are still rising in our area watersheds. The concern here is that the increase in water may result in seasonal flooding causing road closures and unsafe conditions in Bracebridge. Town staff say the current weather conditions will slow the rate of melting, however, there is still no indication that water levels have peaked. The Town’s Emergency Control Group will continue to meet regularly with representatives of other departments and agencies to coordinate local response in the event of flooding.
