Roads closed in St. Clair after heavy rain

Heavy rain has caused flooding in low lying area such as Kingswell Glen Golf Course in Petrolia

We’ve had 60 mm of rain in the last 36 hours and it’s affecting a number of roads in Lambton County.

The St. Clair Region Conservation Authority says rain has subsided, water levels continue to rise

Water levels across the watershed are continuing to rise and spill into natural floodplain areas after receiving upwards of 70 mm of rain over the past two days. Forecasts are calling for a reprieve in rainfall this evening and Sunday, with small amounts of rain in the forecast beginning Monday.

The water levels in the upper reaches of the Sydenham River are beginning to slow their rate of rise and are nearing their peak. Water levels will remain high over the coming 36 hours as the water moves downstream through the watershed towards Wallaceburg.

The following roads have been impacted due to flooding:

  • Stanley Line between Kimball and Wabuno Road
  • Pretty Road north of McCallum Line
  • Waterworks Road north of Courtright Line
  • Telfer Road between Courtright Line and Moore Line
