However, GRCA said residents in the watershed area should be aware that even though flood warnings and watches have have ended, flows are still much higher than normal and it may not be safe for recreational activities.
As a result of the higher and faster flows, GRCA said there may be debris in the river. Municipal staff should check municipal bridges, dams and culverts for debris blockage.
