The City of Toronto reminds the public that fluctuating weather conditions this time of year can pose dangers to people near local waterways. Flooding, if it occurs, may threaten human life and property.

Accumulating rain and snow will increase the danger from creeks, streams and flood retention ponds as water levels sometimes rise and fall quickly. Precipitation can produce slippery surfaces as riverbanks and waterways become muddy and icy, and receding water levels can create similar conditions.
