NB 553

April 16, 2010

FREDERICTON (CNB) - The following water level bulletin is issued by River Watch 2010 and the Department of Public Safety's New Brunswick Emergency Measures Organization on Friday, April 16, 2010:

Water flows and levels along the St. John River basin will continue their steady decline over the next 48 hours in response to the weather forecast for the same period.

Motorists are still cautioned that the elevated water levels in the Jemseg area may force wildlife to seek refuge on the higher ground of the highways and become a traffic hazard.

Persons living and working along streams, tributaries and rivers are advised to continue to pay close attention to local water levels. Residents are advised to know the risks, make a plan, and prepare an emergency kit. Prepare now to help your family be safe.

The next report will be issued on Monday, April 19, 2010.
