News release

City of Mississauga Flood Watch – March 8, 2019

City services | March 8, 2019

Credit Valley Conservation advises that Environment Canada forecasts 10 to 15 mm of rain from Saturday into Sunday. It is to start Saturday as freezing rain changing into rain Sunday when temperatures will be above zero and continue into Monday.

The forecasted rain and warmer temperatures will continue to melt snow and ice. This may cause rising water levels along the Credit River. Some locations may experience ice build-up including Glen Williams, Norval, Huttonville, Eldorado Park, Churchville and Meadowvale. City crews with Credit Valley Conservation Authority and Region of Peel will continue to monitor water levels and respond to changing conditions throughout the day and evening.

Residents are asked to please stay away from all waterways at this time as they can be dangerous, especially for children and pets.

To report flooding, please call 3-1-1. For emergency assistance, please call 9-1-1.

For safety and to reduce potential damage:

  • Avoid walking or driving in flooded areas
  • Stay away from creeks, rivers and streams
  • Keep children and pets away from all waterways
  • Clear debris from catch basins near your home or business, as long as it is safe to do so
  • Call 3-1-1 to report blocked catch basins or road flooding in your neighbourhood
  • Do not open any sewer manholes under any circumstances
