The Grand River Conservation Authority (GRCA) has issued a flood warning for parts of the watershed around Waterloo Region and Brantford due to the rain and melting snow this week.
In statement on Tuesday, the GRCA said the watershed received about 25 millimetres of rainfall over the past 24 hours, with portions receiving up to 35 millimetres.
“The rain coupled with snowmelt and ice in the river is causing runoff and flows at river capacity in much of the watershed,” the GRCA said.
The low level bridge at Three Bridge Road upstream from St. Jacobs was closed Monday night and remains flooded.
