Finch - December 22, 2011 - A recent mishap in Upton, Quebec, prompts South Nation Conservation to issue this reminder.

A six year old boy, playing with friends, slipped and was swept away into a fast flowing river east of Montreal. This is an absolutely tragic event for any family to endure.

Water levels are currently normal in the South Nation River watershed; however, thin ice is beginning to form and streambanks are slippery. South Nation Conservation (SNC) cautions residents along watercourses to be aware of these hazards and encourages parents to keep a close eye on their children over the holidays.

SNC will be monitoring weather forecasts and daily water levels and will issue advisories and warnings, as required.

See watershedconditions.com for the current water levels throughout the watershed.

Staff of the Conservation Authority wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season.
