CORNWALL, Ontario - The Raisin Region Conservation Authority is downgrading it's flood warning to a watch.

While flooding is still possible, it appear the worst is overm the agency said in a press release.

Water levels throughout the region have receded consistently over the last 72 hours. Rivers, creeks, and drains continue to flow well and are unobstructedk, said the RRCA.

Lake levels in the Loch Garry, Middle Lake and Mill Pond are being actively managed by RRCA staff, but may still rise. Residents of Alexandria, downstream of Mill Pond and through to the golf course should be advised that water levels may continue to rise in the Garry River unexpectedly over the next few days as the dams on these lakes are adjusted.

The main urban area within the City of Cornwall is not considered vulnerable at this time. Most of the snowmelt has successfully runoff and passed through local storm sewer network, and/or has been passed through the Fly Creek Flood Control area.
