Friday April 3, 2020 – Please give food donations to those in need

On behalf of the Peterborough Police Service, Peterborough Fire Services and Peterborough County-City Paramedics, we greatly appreciate the ongoing support from the communities we serve during these unprecedented times.

Over the past few weeks people have been attending our Services dropping off prepared meals for our members to enjoy. While this is an extremely thoughtful gesture and is much appreciated we kindly ask that members of the public and local restaurants refrain from attending our stations with food donations of any kind.

While it is a nice morale booster for our members, the food donations are much needed elsewhere in our communities. Further, the donated meals create a gathering place for our members in a time when we are all attempting to physically distance both inside our workplaces and in the community.

We encourage members of our community who would like to help to donate non-perishable food items either to donation bins located in local grocery stores or directly to the Kawartha Food Share. Kawartha Food Share has bins located outside their warehouse at 665 Neal Drive for donations during the pandemic. To contact Kawartha Food Share please call (705) 745-5377 or email info@kawarthafoodshare.com

Thank-you again to our community for your continued support of our members. We are in this together.

Wednesday April 1, 2020 – Otonabee Conversation Issues Flood Warning

From the Otonabee Conservation:

Flood Warning update issued April 1, 2020

Message # 2020-18 

Issued:  11:15 a.m., Wednesday April 01, 2020

Subject: FLOOD WARNING – UPDATE issued for the portion of the Trent-Severn Waterway within the geographical jurisdiction of Otonabee Conservation.

Issued to: Municipalities of Selwyn, Douro-Dummer, Asphodel-Norwood, Otonabee-South Monaghan, Cavan Monaghan, City of Kawartha Lakes, City of Peterborough and Trent Hills, and Otonabee Conservation’s other partners in flood emergency management.

This message is an update to the FLOOD WARNING issued earlier for the Tri-Lakes (Buckhorn Lake, Chemong Lake, Pigeon Lake), Lower Buckhorn Lake and Deer Bay, Lovesick Lake, Stony Lake, Clear Lake and Katchewanooka Lake, the Otonabee River, Rice Lake and the Trent River to Hastings.

Weather Forecast: Starting today, Wednesday April 01st, there will be 4 straight days of warm weather and sunshine. Rain returns Saturday night, but the amount of expected rain is insignificant. This will then be followed by another 2 to 3 days of mostly clear skies.

Kawartha Lakes, Otonabee River, Rice Lake and Trent River –Warm air temperatures in both the Haliburton Lakes / Reservoir Lakes and Kawartha Lakes regions will cause continuous melting, which is of particular significance in Haliburton Lakes / Reservoir Lakes where there continues to be significant amounts of snow and ice.   As a result of continued snowmelt in the Gull, Burnt, Mississauga, Nogies, Eels and Jack watersheds in this Region, water levels on the Kawartha Lakes, from the Tri-lakes downstream to Lake Katchewanooka, the Otonabee River, Rice Lake and the Trent River to Hastings, are expected to continue to rise over the next 48 to 72 hours, albeit slowly because the rate of rise will be tempered by the lack of rain falling on the snowpack in the Haliburton Lakes / Reservoir Lakes Region.

Areas within the Otonabee Region watershed that are already impacted by rising water levels / flows will experience slowly worsening conditions over the next 48 to 72 hours. Therefore, Otonabee Conservation advises all area residents and businesses occupying low-lying areas along the shores of the Kawartha Lakes, from the Tri-lakes downstream to Lake Katchewanooka, the Otonabee River, Rice Lake and the Trent River to Hastings to immediately prepare for flooding.

Indian, Ouse and Otonabee River Watersheds (not including the Trent-Severn Waterway) – With no significant precipitation expected in the next 6 to 7 days, conditions are expected to continuously improve for these  local rivers, streams and creeks (excluding the Trent-Severn Waterway).

This FLOOD WARNING message will next be updated no later than Friday, April 03, 2020 before 3 p.m.
