NVCA monitors weather conditions and river flows to determine if there is a risk of flooding. If there is, we issue flood messages to alert municipal flood coordinators and the public about flood risks.

NVCA maintains the Pretty River Dike​ and Black Ash Creek Floodway to protect low-lying areas in the Town of Collingwood from flooding.

If you have an urgent flooding concern, please contact your municipality. If you are unable to reach someone, please contact our Flood Duty Officer at 705-333-9939 and we will attempt to contact the municipality on your behalf.

Emergencies should always be called in to 911 service, or to the appropriate emergency service number for your location.
