The Township of Madawaska Valley continues to focus on flooding in the region after last night’s rain.

The MNRF says the main areas of concern is Kamaniskeg Lake in Barry’s Bay along with the current water levels at Bark Lake.

Madawaska Valley’s Fire Chief Corwin Quade says the Bark Lake has around a meter to go before it reaches its maximum capacity, with those levels rising at about 16 centimetres a day.

Those observations also show Kamaniskeg Lake was one centimetre from the all-time record of water level set in 1955 as of yesterday afternoon.

The MNRF says as of yesterday the flow from the York River system has slowed.

For residents on Golden and Round lakes, the inflows appear to have stabilized in the area which could provide much needed relief for some residents.

If you do require assistance you can call your township or municipality.

The Killaloe OPP says if there is an emergency do not hesitate to call 911.
