How to receive flood messages

One of the most important responsibilities of Conservation Authorities is to protect people and property from flooding. Information gathered from our system of streamflow gauges, snow courses and weather stations allows us to prepare water level and flow forecasts which are used to warn watershed residents of potential flooding.

When water conditions are unsafe or there is a potential for flooding, the MRCA issues flood advisories through the local media, social media and our website. You can receive flood messages directly in two ways:

  • subscribe to receive messages by email below
  • follow us on Twitter at
