The Grand River Conservation Authority (GRCA) issued a caution, Friday, Dec., 30th around local waterways with mild temperatures and rainfall causing potential slippery bank conditions. The Watershed Conditions – Water Safety statement said mild temperatures and moderate rainfall hover over the Grand River watershed as part of the current weather system occupying southern regions of the province, a drastic change from just one week ago today. Grand River watershed communities are urged to exercise extreme caution around all local waterways. GRCA warns of banks near rivers and creeks being extremely slippery, and with cold, fast-moving water in close proximity such conditions present a serious hazard. Parents are encouraged to keep their children and pets away from all waterways. The warning is set to remain in effect until Friday January 6,
