Kemptville Creek Flooding

Kemptville Creek is now flooding. A flood warning was issued on Monday by the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority. As of today, the creek is at the highest level I’ve ever seen. Of course, I’ve only been in Kemptville for a few years now so that wouldn’t be too difficult. ;)

Things look OK so far from our point of view. No need to start getting the sandbags ready or breaking out the ark. I did take a few pictures though over the last couple days.

I’ll try to keep adding pictures as the waters continue to rise. I’m not entirely sure what the forecast crest will be for little old Kemptville Creek. It seems that the people at RVCA are more interested in the Rideau and the Ottawa rivers, or maybe they just don’t expect any major flooding for Kemptville.
