The area of the pedestrian bridge over the Gananoque River and Confederation is still closed as water levels continue to rise.
The Town continues to warn all residents to stay away from these areas. The dam is wide open as water flows from areas north of Gananoque continue.
The weather forecast for the next couple of days may also contribute to the flooding. “The hope is that the rain and snow will not amount to what is being forecasted”, stated Fire Chief Gerry Bennett.
Signs have been posted in the area of Confederation warning residents to stay out of the park. Gananoque Police Department has attended the schools noting the concerns and the danger of the water to students. Everyone is being asked to pay heed to the warnings.
