Water Response Team issues Level 1 Low Water Advisory for Bayfield River watershed
The Water Response Team (WRT) has announced that a Level 1 Low Water Advisory will remain in place for the Bayfield River watershed area of the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority (ABCA) through at least the month of October. With the exception of August, warm and dry weather patterns persisted since the spring. Despite a return of wetter weather in late September and into October, watersheds have yet to fully recover. The Bayfield River watershed has been hit hardest by drought conditions, receiving only two thirds of the rainfall measured across the remainder of the ABCA watershed.
