The situation is still being closely monitored in regards to the levels of the Ottawa River, notably in the municipality of Mansfield-et-Pontefract. The Emergency Services has also visited the municipality to try to plan various precautions as the water levels could increase by 15 centimeters today.

Already several homes are struggling with flooding in their basements and some homes are becoming increasingly isolated. The municipality recommends that residents living in this type of situation take the necessary moves to ensure their safety or to contact with the municipality for help. Sand bags are available behind the municipal offices or at the municipality’s sand depot.

The meeting of the Mansfield municipal council that was scheduled tonight has been postponed to next week since the council will meet this evening to deliberate over the different measures to take if necessary. Also remember not to drink water from the artesian wells if they may have been contaminated by river water. Stay tuned to CHIP 101.9 for more information.
