North Huron, ON – North Huron Emergency Control team met on Monday to assess the response by the municipality to the flood warning issued on Friday, June 23th. North Huron staff worked closely with the Maitland Valley Conservation Authority during the flood warning to monitor water levels and the potential threat to residents and property. Risk of high water in the Maitland watershed was a result of an excessive amount of rainfall overnight on Thursday, June 22.
“Thank you to staff and everyone involved for their efforts, on behalf of Council. We were fortunate that flooding didn’t reach the maximum anticipated level, but Council was confident that there was plan in place and a team working together to respond to any possible outcomes. All members of Council were regularly apprised of the situation,” said North Huron Reeve, Neil Vincent.
North Huron parks and trail have now been reopened. Galbraith Soccer Park remains closed due to excessive amount of water on the field. The municipality is reminding residents to continue to be vigilant near watercourses.
