The Premier of Ontario has declared a province-wide state of emergency and issued a stay-at-home order in response to rising COVID-19 variant infection rates.
Residents are reminded to use caution around creeks, ponds and the lake where localized flooding and shoreline erosion have created dangerous conditions.
Lake levels remain higher than normal and some areas are prone to sudden flooding and ponding when heavy rainfall is combined with easterly winds. Areas that are taped or fenced off may be unsafe and we ask that residents please respect the closures so that no one gets hurt.
Staff are inspecting our shoreline, lakeside parks and harbours daily to assess conditions and take action where required.
The following areas are closed and will reopen when it is safe to do so:
Our sports fields may also be closed as a result of the wet weather. For more information about the status of sports fields, visit our Sports Field Closures and Facilities Updates page.
If water threatens to flood structures or roadways, please contact ServiceOakville at 905-845-6601.
Conservation Halton is asking all residents to exercise caution around Lake Ontario shoreline areas and to alert children in your care of these imminent dangers.
